Well looks like I'm due for the fwit award .
So I decided to clean headset out for some maintenance.
Then proceeded to break top stem bolt ( it was a alloy colour coded one ) oops .
Now I thought I was a reasonable bike mech .
When I went to put a new steel bolt in I noticed that my star nut...
I've run 3 sets of syntace wheels 26" 27.5 set ( still going ) new set 27.5 boost hubs
I've dinged them ( my fault low tyre pressure ,) but all sets have been Stella . that break looks weird , kinda break . deff not rider fault .
Love the build thread sweet bike
Duncan from Diymtb was a legend . After a few phone calls we've worked a solution out .
Very happy with how he's handled the situation ( being as I didn't buy from him )
So lesson I've learnt here pays in the long run to buy local .
Love them . depending on which ones nukeproof have longer pins .
These orange ones I changed to longer pins .
But otherwise tough thin and lite .
I've bent a pair but they can take a hammering .
I've run alloy and find these to be better . the cheap price is a bonus
So this bike is going super well .
But I'm pretty miffed with my metric forks .
Long story short bought from the US cheap . been riding for a month or so and there's a fair amount of fork play going on .
Hmm I've emailed us shop where i bought from . and no reply . so hoping diymtb can help me...
