I've seen this play before on this forum.
The DA 7400 hub is excellent. I have three wheelsets that use them. I think it should serve you fine at your weight provided the wheel is well built.
No, I dumbfounded. I hope you'll share what the problem is when it is determined.
I think they look great. It would be great if you could report your experiences with them.
For touch-up work, Model Master 2135 may work for you.
The grooving will increase the surface area for more efficient braking and better heat dispersion. But when worn down, they do not indicate the rim needs to be replaced.
If it was me, I'd move on to a new tire - especially with Winter coming.
I'm not a fan. It is oriented toward what is popularly being sold in large bike stores - right now: road and mountain.
As others have mentioned, this site is of greater value. I do subscribe to...

I would predict that there will be some specialty manufacturers that will be collectable. For instance, I would watch for the...
I currently have Schwalbe Marathon Supremes on two of my bikes. One uses Mavic OpenPros (28mm); the other has Velocity Dyads (35mm). They are excellent tires. I almost never get flats, and I...
I did not know such a thing existed!
When that happened to me, the cause was an incorrect sized spacer - a nine-speed spacer was in a eight-speed cassette set.
I suppose a good rule of thumb is to clean and grease them each year during the dark days of Winter, and replace the bearings every three years. That'll get you to 50k miles or so.
I can compare it to anything I wish, but your point of lacking a warranty is an important one to consider.
That's something I've done. I got the satisfaction of building and having an excellent condition lugged steel frame with high-end parts that rides great, albeit a little heavy by modern bike...
It may help if you could post some images of the frame.
I have both SMP Selle (glider) and Brooks (B17) saddles.
I use the SMP Selle on two road bikes and I think it is terrific. The hammock design (if you have one you know what I mean) fits by...
Flat Wellgo pedals, steel pins.
That short era of Ishiwata forks and crowns on low trail Treks seems to have this problem. Here is another source of information on this case from this forum.
