Request to borrow a wheel
#1
Further to my thread in the pitstop, i need to borrow a disc compatible rear wheel (9sp freehub) for a couple of months.  Does anyone have a spare lying around i could use?  I promise to take care of it!

Better still would be an old XT hub that i could strip for parts as i suspect it might contain what i need to get mine up and running again

Cheers

Nick

I've got a Singletrack on a Pro 2 you can borrow. I can't see me getting the Inbred up and running for a couple of months at least and it's in the way Wink

And i'll have the weight af an inner tube as i won'e have my ultralight tubeless setup [awaits flaming]  Big Grin  It'll be good for the fitness though!

On a serious note they can't be that heavy and i'm very grateful to borrow anything that'll get the bike running again!

That'll be cool 8)  Do you happen to have a small file though, as i had a job to get the cassette off when i swapped wheels. It's an ally freehub body so it's a little chewed up :Smile  It's got brand new bearings in it though Wink I get home just after 5, so pop round whenever's good with you.

Oh and do it IN my garage?... have you seen the mess in there Big Grin

I don't have a file.  Do you have something we can use?  I presume you have chainwhip etc?  Ok we'll do the mechanicals on your drive then - it shouldn't take long

I'll be over at yours about 6 or a little after then

Hey Nick,
What am i doing on here:

Fed up at work : yes
Wishing i'd cycled this morning : yes (in fact both bikes are prepped for departure... just my laziness to blame)
Staring at the SUNSHINE :yes!!

anyway all of the above meant that i felt like a bit of a bike fix!

You are welcome to my old wheels if you want them and they will work for your bike? The rear one is good to go, it is just the front one that took the battering.....! I won't sell them so it is no problem, will probably mount them on a wall someday, in remembrance of lake garda and its amazing biking..  i mean tunnels!
