Yo Tom sorry I missed out, I was in whistler this weekend, getting snowed on and basically shit on by holiday weekend resort town lameness.
yo dude give me a shout, im part of the ride/push up, and I ride every weekday, I am heading to whistler tonight but spent the day out there at vedder today and it is PRIME, helped Todd (a builder) revamp a kicker and daaamn its nice. my # is 604-316-7647. I will show you what I know (just moved out here too).
thanks for the info, I'm guessing someplace like BC Bearing would be able to hook it up ? What other sort of store might have these items in stock?
Google ads just aint comin through for this thread, thanks for all of the information dudes.
So I bought a new wheelset last spring with the intention of upgrading the hubs soon enough, so I opted for the cheapo formula 20mm hub on a mavic 729…worked for a while but now the front hub has an unreal amount of play in it, I looked online but couldnt find any rebuild information, can I replace the bearings in them?? Or am I stuck rebuilding my wheelset?
Kind of a piss off if they are not rebuildable.. both for the money and the waste of it.
if I cant rebuild them - what is the failure mode for this sort of thing, will it all of a sudden lock up and kill me? Or eventually the play becomes so bad that its just embarassing to ride it anymore? Catastrophic failure mode or just performance turning to shit before I get hurt.
I'm in an electrical apprenticeship and finding it pretty fun but not that interesting or engaging so far - working as a construction electrician apprentice is ok but the plan is to get into industrial control and instrumentation once I have my ticket (or I can find a way to segue in).
Construction electrical is lame because you are always commuting. I want to get a job where I can settle down somewhere for 5-10 years at a time. Spend my free time doin some recreating, creating, fornicating, procreating, not driving the #1.
I'm pretty sick of all the super dutys I've been peeping lately, you gotta think that these guys are using a line of credit or something to finance that shit and its just insane, its only a status symbol if you arent slaving at a job trying to maintain payments.
Even if I was making big enough coin to 'justify' buying a truck and doing it out I would spend it on something way cooler, some new outdoor gear like a whitewater kayak and a kitesurf setup and a trip to indian creek utah to shred some crack climbing.
