Hi,

it's actually a track rear disc but I think this subforum fits the issue the most ;-)
So, I have cracked a thread of lockring. It's a big issue as 90% of time I ride without a lockring, however for some (more amatour) endurance races I used to use it.

I am in touch with a great carbon wheel builder (he manufactures discs for one of the BIG brand (and another BIG in the past)). So, I'm sure he know what he is doing. Anyway, he proposed me to cut my current hub from the disc and replace by a new one. He says that the operation has no risk. Well, I am sure about it. But the things I am consider (and I guess here is where the builder doesn't have to have experience) is how cutting a middle of disc and replacing it by a new carbon would perform?
Stiffness? I guess it can be even stiffer. What about weight balance, truing wheel, cracking-possibility and other stuff? What do you think? Worth to upgrade the hub or keep it rollin' without a lockring?

Bart
