I just received a R2 Spingery wheelset and would like to know in these Spinergy hubs have cartridge guts or if they can be overhauled like in the good old days. I know they have adjustments for the cones. Thanks for any feed-back.

In answer to my own question, and for anyone else who would like to know, the non drive side of the rear wheel is cartridge and the drive side has 9 loose ball bearings. I know this because I rebuilt and readjusted it tonight with great results. The front wheel is cartridge on both sides.

I am waiting still for something as lowly as wheel replacement decals to arrive through my LBS. They were ordered the 6th of December.....Oh, this order was placed after my 8th email to Spinergy, which they finally responded to after I mentioned that I would gladly post my "wonderful" experience dealing with their customer (non)service. The last I knew, Eric told me that "he was sure the order was in the system". No $hit! Then, he passed off responsibility to someone else, and said that it must have been due to the "two short weeks" around the holidays. What ever. Then, the latest excuse was that since they had moved, they were way behind in orders/emails/blah blah blah. I told him I prayed each night that I never need any real service from them, since wheel decals are such a tough item. Of course, he reassured me that I made the "right decision" to replace my (broken, or course!) Rev-X's with Xaero's. I really wonder.........
