Stripped a hub, my fault?
So i bought a BD Windsor "the hour" about 3 months ago. The cog kept coming loose while I was learning to skid, so I rotafixed it, and now, the next day, the cog is stripped.
Is it my fault, or was it just a cheap hub? I'm 180 lbs and a fairly strong rider, but I was just barely learning to skid, and i've only owned the bike for a few months.
Can anybody recommend a strong, cheap rear wheel? This is my rain/commuter bike, but I still need it to be strong. I presume that the rim/spokes are too cheap to warrant a rebuild on a new hub, but I'm open to that option too.
