mega busy at the moment, you'd have though it was 2 months before some commercial holiday or something, but Simon think's I keep dying or someting.

nothing's really happening, Hope called and asked if they could replace the bearings in the wheel I sent to them, I gave up and said, OK, despite the other bearings having only been in the wheel for 6 weeks, he said that I'd probably damaged the seal putting them in.. I'd have argued, but too busy, so I decided to let new ones be installed and I'll see how quickly I can obliterate them, I'm sure that relying entirely on the seals on the bearings is not a very good idea in a country renowned for rainfall.

I'm tempted to send the Pro2 back to them, wait for the call and see what trhey say about factory fitted bearings lasting 1,000 miles (actually it was really only 600 miles).

Still not decided on new hub, still interested in a King Hub, because of the instant uptake, as when I climb bumpier tracks I'm constantly feeling the pawls back off from teh drive surface as I crank... it's a 180-230quid investment though.

that's all I have 2.5pages of ads to do for Monday.
