Regarding there is a lot of CNC going on on those Manitou frames,
just like this wheelset has some nice hub flanges that are also CNC'd.
That's what I meant!

I know :) I was being sarcastic! :wink:

It's just what I was thinking, I just don't know if it would be a bit OTT.

they have carbon spokes, but Alu hubs ;)

could you get a picture of the front axle and nuts for me? I'm struggling to figure out how to rebuild mine with no parts!

I have a couple of sets of these...they have oversize carbon hub bodies, but the spokes are actually PBO plastic, not carbon. Link for spare spokes if needed:)

What, mine or the spokes? Mine are 26" MTB and by the look of it, he has spokes for road and off road :)

I think he asks about your spare parts, if they fit 26" or 700C.

Cheers,
Peter
