What have you done to your nimbus hub?

Though I'm not a fan of KH flanges... Miles' KH hub problem is almost
definitely a manufacturing defect. It does happen to the best of
components and goods of all sorts. Really bad luck.

I'm more than confident that Kris would be more than willing to replace
it for you.

Speaking of which, are we to be expecting 08 KH products for a late
spring/summer release?

together and tell you guys what happens.

There have been a few KH hubs' flanges bending/breaking on less than
severe punishment (I've heard of chro-moly cotterless and Qu-Ax red
hubs taking more of a beating than those that broke).  Whether this is
a manufacture defect (now not too surprising, since it's still pretty
new), or a design flaw is to be seen.

The cutouts in the KH flanges has risen speculation that the Nimbus hub
may be stronger, and skrobro definately needs a VERY strong hub.

Ride everywhere and never just ride anywhere.  If you can ride where you
are going within a hour, do it, and if you can do a trick 50-75% of the
time do it along the way.
