I'm sitting down watching football (f'ing Colts won again) and I hear this loud "Pop" come from the bedroom. I get up, go in and turn on the lights and look around....nothing looks unusual....then I turn to my beloved 5200 Team Bike resting against the closet...and notice two of the spokes on the rear wheel hanging off!!?? WTF??
I get the wheel off and take a look at it in the kitchen and the inner flange on the hub of my Race X Lite Aero snapped right off where two of the spokes went in. Looking at it, you can see where the hub had a crack in it that had been there for a while, but never broke until tonight when it was just sitting in my bedroom. I haven't ridden the bike since mid-september and this bike is my baby. My most prized of all my bikes. I'm heartbroken.
I'm hoping that my LBS will hook me up and get the wheel or hub warrantied, since these are about a $900 set of wheels.
The only plus is that I have a spare set of wheels and it's winter so I'm not riding it. But besides being sik this week and having a sore back for some reason...I have this happen. I guess it's better now than flying down a decent this spring at 40 mph.
