If anyone said, "Hey, can I get a little help here?" that would be the correct answer.
Before anyone gets excited about stealing photo's, my wife just ordered two, so our conscience is clear.

|me (the pawls stopped engaging 11 mi from home -- rather than trash my carbon-soled DMT's, I started walking in my socks; finally got my wife to pick me up after 2-3 miles), they've been great (sent them back, they replaced the hubs). I've raced them a few times now, and they're good. They wind up real fast, have remained true, etc. They're incredibly light.
I guess I've heard that some people have experienced spokes cracking the hub and pulling out -- is that what you're talking about? Supposedly they've fixed most of these issues.
|ouch, but mine are OK||weiwentg|

|I probably got my wheels (with those hubs and ritchey rims) after you did. hubs have been a-ok thus far. my guess is that you are right - their QC issues have been fixed.|

|Wire tie the big cog to the spokes, don't coast, beats walking. Wire tie = ? 5 grams each?3|| |
