Yeah... No point going OEM for that stuff... It's a pain to find a place to do it around here though. Which means the bike will be out of order for a couple weeks... Unless it gets another wheel :P
That sucks! Here in Germany most off the new bike dealer are not able to change spokes or they want a hell of money! They only repair and Service modern bikes with three- or five- spoke wheels. The old school how to change spokes quick and safe is gone. I was happy to find someone fair 300km away for it.
will have to work out some prices. Am moving the old girl to my workshop next Monday then she shall be stripped of her assets. :)
Fair enough. Let us know. ;)
In fairness ... respoking a wheel properly is time consuming.
We know a guy that laces wheels from his home. The man is an artist, a great skill he has no one interested to pass on to. The Fella would like to learn but hasn't the time.
If the transaction goes through Jonathan Pine, I'll bid you for your damaged rear wheel.
Lacing and truing wheels can be satisfying and enjoyable. The trick is to go slow and be patient. It's like riding a good crooked stretch of road .... smooth becomes fast over time. Raven .... why don't you take this up? Requires minimal space. Very few tools. People would appreciate it. :)
It may be something for the future, you never know.
I should add ... Of course, it should be profitable, too.
kev its a pity yove decided to scrap it is it due to the prang? That I can understand. Are you thinking of buying another?
