Will compliment my other off X517

Hi Gav,
Sorry for the slow reply :oops: Just double checked and everything seems straight best as I can tell out of the bike (and it rode fine not long back so I'm pretty confident on that), walls are obviously used but still nice and smooth, not too worn at all with the machining still visible. There is a slight rumble to the bearings, so maybe in 10 000 muddy miles or so you'll need to drop a fiver and ten minutes work on a set of bearings! :wink: :lol:

Certainly in no immediate danger though :D


Trying to think of postage dodges but unless anyone from your way is coming up to the Peaks National, I'm struggling a bit...

Should say - not 100% that's the actual bearings you need - just an indicator/start point! :wink:

Just a reminder to people not to buy this just so we can annoy elpedro :twisted:


though it is a nice wheel and the hubs a lovely red mono suspension, check it out at the national* The bearings are 6001 2RS
