Mounted it up last Sunday -
A TM ride at 6MR and SMP, a nice cruise through 6MR on Wednesday, and then Friday at the Sourlands. Crunch. Mid-ride i hear that weird sound a hub can make
when it is kinda working but something just ain't right. Engagement was fine, coasting: not so much.

The driver bearing let go, one of the pawl seats (is that what they are called?) is boogered.
Great - another slow boat from China!

Funny how @shrpshtr325 is always on the rides where my bike breaks.
Is this the same hub you had issues with no that long ago?

invest in a decent hub and you won’t have fix every 20 hours of riding

hub is kinda integrated with the tri-spoke.

Broke down and went AXS on the post after giving up on the reverb hydro

still playing with tire size. 27.5x2.6” rear and 29x2.35” front.

tried the tinker Juarez odi dread grips and they are awesome. Sort of like a esi that isn’t slippery when wet. Tried them on my quad first and loved them there

loving the new 429. Better climber and descender than the old one.
I’m stoked.

Changed the front wheel bearings on the fat bike, old ones were starting to get a little grindy. Had to improvise pulling them as there was no lip inside to catch the puller on. Popped the shield, little heat, levered one enough to catch, then they came out no problem. Pressed the new ones in and all's good in the neighborhood. Now if only I had more time to ride...

Now you know why you don’t buy tri spoke, at least 1 of the 101 reasons.

They offered to buy back the wheel as it isn't "made for aggressive riding."
i took them up on the offer. (will let the person know that got it for me)
now i have a front tri-spoke for sale. ebay here i come.
