Right up until this last page I was really enjoying this thread! Although it hardly came as a shock to see one of those hubs in that state sadly ... not it stops me buying them :oops:

Hope it's back on (off) the road and getting thrashed some more now, really enjoyed the write-up, cheers! Did you get a project started for the lad? :D

I did get a few rides out of it before my hub gave in. Down CastleEden walkway past Hurworth Burn to Thorpe Thewels, up to Roker and round the doors. By the way Google Tracks dont map Piers. :lol:

So while I mopped the tiers and sourced another red Fatso I sent my forks to Tim for a rebuild. Full rebuild and make them a bit harder.

It took a while, well maybe a week and a half (but seemed like a life time) a found a hub from a fellow retrower. But in the rush just to get hold of a hub I forgot to check the holeage. Mine was 32 the replacement 36. Doh!! :oops: Didnt realise until I started to feed it spokes!!!
