    It's possible.
    I don't deny that it could be an isolated incident.
    But, just as a side comment, it wasn't his first fixed and he did make sure everything was installed properly and tightly.
    So, it wasn't user error.

    yeah, search this crap. I'll backup that the quando hubs are bunk, and yes, they are stripped easily and need to be overhauled upon purchasing.

    for three hundred bucks, you could spend 50 bucks on a halfway decent rear hub and have a nice bike for under 400 bucks. Beats an alpha
