    I had a set built on Sep. 2013 with 2x Mavic A319 rims, DT-Swiss Champ 2.0 spokes, a Shimano Deore front hub and the existing low-mileage Nexus-3 IGH. The wheels have stood up to daily commuting...

    It's already Monday morning here so I'll call up my LBS (a trusted wheel builder) and have him order the necessary parts for the repair.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to since I already have the Nexus-3 IGH which is 36h.

    Of course the rim will be replaced asap, but asap will probably be in a week or two (that is IF it will survive that long). As for changing to a 7 or 11 IGH, the 3 covers my current needs, so...

    Recently replaced a TAYA single-speed chain with less than 500 miles on it. The chain had stretched more in three weeks than the previous KMC S1 which lasted 2,500 miles.

    Maybe it was a fluke,...

    I don't dress with specific clothing to LOOK like a commuter, but being one, I probably fit the clothing "stereotype"; sans the lycra since I'm a Clyde.

    Having said the above, I have noticed a...

    Thanks for all your suggestions, but I don't think what @rmfnla and @SquidPuppet suggested can be used because of the IGH's anti-rotation washer on one side and the (probable?) specific type nut on...

    So far the axle hasn't begun to slip, but more and more torque is needed to keep it in place, and since this is my daily commuter, I would prefer to have a "plan-b" ready (replacement frame, -or-...
