Did for my regular commuter bike, again

It's certainly not my week with bicycles. Killed my regular commuter this time.



Just riding along and my rear wheel felt mushy, so decided to have a look.

Two large cracks across the hub. Eek. If that'd failed at an inopportune moment, I dread to think what a mess it'd've been.

Ho, hum, time to build a new wheel.

Darnation! The hoop is manky too. So might as well make it a whole new wheel I have to build.





Ah, that's better, back, and fit for duty. Doesn't look too odd does it?

But' still, a damned close call that one!
