I just wonder, would anyone here ride on this hub?
I bought my wheels from starbike (good service). I had a damaged drive side endcap since march, not sure why it happened (overtightend? defect?). I asked for help from starbike, kindly they put me through to tune , they said try poshbikes. However, poshbikes do not want to sell me one, although they said in an email they sell them for approx £10, the man I spoke to on the phone (who would not give me his name, I asked on a few occasions, he would not disclose) said the remaining endcaps he has are for their customers rebuilds and suggested I buy a new wheel, or send mine in to be repaired as it is a difficult job, as are many different end caps over the years and with the cost with new freehub I might as well buy a new wheel. I said it was for a mag 190, a drive side end cap and that tune had already ID'd the part, He told me to email him a picture so he could ID the part instead. He would not reply after that to any of my emails. So unfortunately, trust has gone, my £10 sale wasnt enough for them to be interested. (he was very polite though.)
I also have been polite in all my emails . I have said that this issuse is hazordous and could cause an accident to poshbikes and tune. I really have to ride my bike, I cannot afford to get a taxi whilst I wait for a part 'never' to arrive as no one will sell me one.
Will i have to buy a mag hub off ebay to get this part? Or a new wheel? : (
here are some pics.
please concider there is a hair line crack stretching around the (inner) perimiter of the lip of the end cap, you can just about make it out, in the top picture to the right of the cracked aluminium, it has stretched bigger since I last took the wheel off, which really is worrying me. *note this now has a new freehub springs and paws, I bought off starbike last week.
thanks for any advice, maybe you know of a shop that will sell me one?
