    I looked for a steel body, but didn't find one for the 340. Will look again. Since the Star Ratchet is so easy to access, servicing once a year should be doable for my son once I show him how.

    I have talked with him about jumping too hard. The 36t engagement ring on the DT hub will help prevent trouble from it, but he still needs to exercise some preventative measures. After this wheel,...

    Perhaps I am too sensitive. Please accept my apologies if any of you were offended by my comments.

    Can't wait to build the wheel! Until then, he will just have to keep running.

    I don't get it either. I have seen Shimano bodies fail in the same manner, but not repeatedly for the same rider. The DT Swiss hub is on the way. Just going to have to deal with the aluminum body, no...

    Yes, 50/21 on a 8% grade is big, too big for me at least. He does not race, just likes to ride hard for stress relief. Nice thing is he will wait for you to catch up. Usually on the down hill! Yeah,...
