    Anybody here know how to swap a Level Hub axle? I've got a busted axle on one side, right where the spacer is.

    It probably happened because the stupid LBS I bought it from didn't include the bolt attachment washers, putting a lot of extra stress on the axle, which Level has also improved since this hub was made. I've got the replacement parts. Level's rep was supposed to send me a PDF of the instuctions, but he is doped up on percocet, as he was tagged fairly hard by a car this week, nothing permanent done to him, fortunately.

    One of the guys from Level did get back to me Saturday evening, so I got the wheel back up and running for today's commutte. Bascially you just take off the cogs, put an axle bolt on one side and bash it with a rubber mallet. Easy.
