I've been on the hunt for the right set of SH hubs to replace the king earles on my bottlerocket. Rear was slipping when I bought it, pulled it apart, it's beyond repair. Had been using a spare set, but was keen to build up original rims with replacement hubs*
*you may have seen my wanted ads and sig, seeking 36 spoke hubs/shagged wheels with good hubs.
Anyhoooo, got some nice red hope pro 2 evos yesterday (thanks, rainbowofdeth, new front bearings and they'll be like bought ones). Had a few hours spare this arvo while kids played, so I made a start on the wheel unbuild/rebuild. Dismantled old wheel...Started relacing the hopes onto the rims.....
.....I swear that I counted the spokes when I first got the bike...I guess I don't count good.
So... Now I have no money for new 36 spoke rims, and a set of sweet 36 hole hubs....
Ive made a few bike fuck ups in my time, but this has to be the most embarrassment and cringeworthy.
Eat a dick, me.
