i still have to pay for the rest of my new iro, and a headset and crankset. my front wheel is in pretty good condition, so i might as well get a rear wheel, shred it up in the same amount of time it'll take me to ruin my front, and then get something real extravagant.
I'm new to this, and I don't understand what the OP has done wrong furing the installation to ruin his hub. I want to make sure I don't do it. And what does it mean to mash up a big hill?
i didn't sacrifice a virgin and gather the blood of ten slaughtered lambs in a cup and pour it on the cog post-installation.
i didn't ****ing put the cog and lockring on... i don't think a faulty installation made this cheap hub finally break down. i bought it for fifteen bucks on craigslist about eight months ago and i'm very surprised it lasted this long. i'm sure there are plenty of geniuses here who can point out every flaw i made in my choice of wheel and there are lots of people here who will make you think they know everything and you're wrong... but really 90% of the stuff people get fired up over on here doesn't matter.
i think i'm gonna loctite it on, put my lockring back on real tight and be prepared to ted shred anytime i NEED to come to a stop in the next month.
