    Formula hub locknut broken

    yes, i overtightened it

    I know i have seen an upgrade replacement for it but i can't find it on the normal stores i buy from.


    this is the oem part that is broken:

    i actually just broke mine... funny that you mentioned it

    why don't you just order it from ben's? seems a bit pricey tho

    about to go to my LBS to see if they have a better price than 4$

    LBS is the way to go. Even a high LBS mark up (although unlikely for nuts and bolts), would be minimal compared to high shipping prices online....

    It was hard as hell for me to locate a fomula locknut locally, finally found one at a shop that was a little more ssfg specific than the others.

    If there is an upgrade out there I would also be interested to know of it.
    Those who are easily shocked should be shocked more often.
