If no one offers v12's
Consider getting new v8's
Theyre about £25

£19 ?? Better have a look!!

Missed a set of magnesium ones on ebay last night they went for £32. Just trying to build the bike with the best I can afford and thought a 2nd hand set of magnesium ones would be a better choice as im getting a little bit more for my money ... But I would have sprayed them anyway so guess im defeating that object a little lol

I bought a new set of V8s and maybe they are broken but the bearings are awful compared the V12s. Very notchy and stuttery in action, maybe improve with use but I'm a bit miffed tbh, not a patch on the V12s.

Magsy, Sounds like the cones in yours are a little over-tight :?

(just pop the end cap off and release the bolt a /th of a turn)

My V8's are smooth as butter and easy to service too 8)

Easy to service = squirt grease in grease port :lol:

Average price of secondhand v12's is about £35 so its not too far off.

Maybe try pinkbike

The pins on my v8's unscrew to allow bling'y anno'd pins,
not sure if the anno'd end caps fit the 8's though?? :?
