When Troy Watson (Ligero Wheelworks) worked at his own shop, he built a wheel set for me with Mig 70 and a Mag 180, after a year and a half it began to creak. Sent it to Fairwheel Bikes and they fixed it with the Tune "fix". It creaked again so they took the hub in as a trade-in and offered me this Mag 170.
The wheel was then rebuilt around the new Mag 170, again by Troy Watson for Fairwheel Bikes, built with Sapim C-Xray and Alu Nipples and laced to Nio30 rims.
I'm bummed, I like the hub. This is the first time I've broken a hub flange in over 25 years of riding and racing. I guess I'll just give them a call and see what they say about it.
Reason: no need to quote. this is a reply. you can find that button right next to the quote button. Thanks!
Reason: and another quote changed to a reply.

Time for them to do a recall along with the Alchemy ORC UL....
one failure and you want to recall thousands of hubs?
Yeah, that is exactly what happened with Alchemy ORC UL hub. 1 failure, research and testing performed, recall all of them.

The broken hubs can serve as donors for bearings and axles, the former are sometimes the original one Tune put in, so they outlast the flanges!
