    I'm guessing you would have felt the wheel squirreling out on you; I have when I break a spoke, but maybe not right away with such large tires. And since disc brakes are harder on the spokes/rims,...

    They are probably cartridge bearings? Not sure how much you will be able to access for greasing. Are the hubs not spinning smoothly anymore?

    Well, my reaction was really just based on TwoWheel's comment that he needed to signal with a specific hand because he needed to use the brake [and had removed the other one]. I agree that if the...

    My favorite thing about this FG thing is how gracefully function yields to form.

    I'm not really judging, just chuckling. I've done far dumber things to "be cool". :-)

    What is with the 1 1/8 - 1 1/4 taper ?! Cannondale does that too, annoying. 1 1/8 - 1 1/2 seems perfectly fine and far more available.
