Mate

I have not yet posted your wheel. I am having real issues fitting my new wheel and getting it sorted with my V-brakes. Am going to give it a good go on Wednesday, but if I can't sort it I will have to keep the original. Whate4ver heppens, I will still send your cassette and refund all the money you paypal'd me.

Sorry to keep you waiting.

SB
