Apparently when a couple cracked a hub flange on their tandem, in the Andes, the manufacturer
Rohloff, got another hub shell sent to them to rebuild their hub.
WWW does make things move quicker than sending stamped postage
around the world, to seek remote help.
I have had to stay in one place, a few weeks , to get a bank statement from
my Credit Union, to see what my Debit card use was costing me and what was left.
