    Shimano is a patent bully but they have a long list of products they themselves have developed. They are a real company that spends real money on R&D, not a company that simply copies...

    I'm not wired that way.

    If I did it would have put them out of business. We were happy to have the support and beyond this one issue things were pretty good.

    I once was forced to race on a set of wheel built this way. They folded in a corner and left me splayed on the pavement.

    It is an incredibly dumb idea and yields a much seeker wheel.

    Pass.

    All ferrules are not created equal. Good ferrules have pinch points inside to secure and seal the housing. They also have o-rings to seal the...

    Always with skewers.

    The kit is meant to have everything you need, including the tools, to build the wheels and then slap them on your bike and go for a ride (ok, so tires and tubes).

    They don't.

    There are two factories in China I know of (and 1 in Taiwan) that use a Basalt layer on the brake track. This isn't to improve wear; It's there to deal with heat.

    Is that drum worn out yet?

    Braking on carbon rims is not an issue in the dry. Add water and alloy is the way to go but even then braking suffers.

    Regarding customs this shouldn't be an issue. Most countries don't apply tariffs to hubs. Those that do do so usually at around 5%.

    Those are NOT 11spd hubs. They are lying. In fact those hubs are several years old and 100% 10spd.

    Damn.

    Coasting as the only person from this hell hole I ever met in real life. I even liked the guy.

    It's very upsetting to hear this news.
