Help required with my rear spin here please chaps... :facepalm:



Seriously though.... I don’t want to have to resort to lacing up a pair of SUP’s with some XTR.... because that’s what’ll happen if I can’t sort this Spin rear... :(

Swapped the carbon Campagnolo record with an Easton EC90... as I really needed another 40/50mm of post.
Matches up well with the cockpit... I’ll take it out for a spin in the morning to see if it feels as good...

Right choice, as you say, the red on the post balances with the cockpit nicely 8)

I've got a spare pair of spins but not a single, will look out for a single on my travels

Cheers Si, although the Holts silicone spray that I used after the complete strip/clean/re-build seems to be working well. It's allowed me to tighten the hub up further, reducing the wobble substantially whilst not having the bike feel like I’m dragging a horse.... :roll:

I must admit though...it's not an awesome ride.. :| The lock-out switch on the DT swiss is an absolute must! :shock:

If it wasnt for the fact that it is very comfortable downhill on the rough stuff I'd have stripped it and pushed it on by now...
