well isn't this just special (broken stuff)

Superb. Nuke Proof my ass.





That rim is a little tired too, so I might need to replace the whole show. It's not even June yet

happened to me when my chain fell off the 32T and took out 8 spokes (cut 2, damaged 6 others that were cut about 50% through and had to be replaced)

Yea, I know. Just a lousy time to blow something up is all, going to have to wait a few weeks to do something about it. It's not really a big deal, I scrounged one to roll on in the mean time but it's annoying. Plus they were neat hubs, haha.

Yea, right about.

They ain't cheap but both Chris King and Hope make some great hubs. I know the King's have a 5 year warranty...and they like to help people out even after that. Not sure about the Hope's though. I'm sure they are nice folks too...
