good news and bad news

So I have good news and bad news for today. I will start off with the good news...

Good news: I am pretty sure I am going to buy a Profile mini front hub to a Odyssey 7ka rim for $25 from a kid who is selling it for (drug) money. If my friend doesn't buy the Profile mini cassette to 7ka, I may buy that too. Both are $25, but my friend shottied the back one, and I'd still be happy just getting the front wheel.

Bad news: While making a very sharp turn, somehow, my pedal hit the ground and somehow, that aggravated my bad ankle/leg. I can't walk so well right now. I'm getting surgery in two days. Hopefully I won't get recurrences like this after it is done.

EDIT: More bad news: I just remembered I have a 14mm fork. Damnit.

Sucks about your ankle.. put the outside pedal down next time

Also sucks for the kid who's selling that stuff, but it's good for you. Someone on BG said they bought a 5D and 24-105 ($3k+ setup) for 900 bucks, from someone who needed the cash. And if it went to drugs, they probably blew it in a couple days...

Yeah, I just hope it's still there to be bought because I want that stuff. I would have went to go buy it right now, but I had to come home. I really want the back wheel, though.

Just use adapters, You'll have to get a really long allen wrench if you want to run pegs though.

I don't have adaptors. I might end up trading someone my brand new rim for some forks.

Im running a 3/8 axle in a 14mm fork on my beater bike with no problems. I just put a 14mm hat washer on and then a couple smaller washers and it works perfect.

I just picked up the front wheel. Profile SS front hub in 3/8ths to a 36h Odyssey 7ka in black. I'll get pictures later.

EDIT: I got pictures now.

Eh, it'll come off easy. It's definitely worth the $35 I spent for it. I'll probably end up selling the hub one way or another. I want a Marmoset.

Yeah, it's the SS. It weighs a ton compared to other hubs. It's a bit overkill.

I could just sell it on eBay and buy myself a brand new wheel with the money. Marmoset + hazard light + DT Swiss spokes. It might not even cost me anything.

Actually, it would be a Marmoset + rhynolight + dt swiss spokes. I don't need a hazard light in the front. That would only run me about $150. I could probably get close to that for what I have now.

I really want to throw the wheel on. Would it mess up the axle if I put it on without adaptors? There would be no peg use on the front as I don't have any 3/8ths pegs.

It'll be fine, just make sure it stays seated, best way to tell is if the wheel is perfectly centered in the fork.

Alright, that works. I wish you told me that before. I'm getting surgery tomorrow. That means, no riding for a few days.
