Hey ST, much internet searching has lead me pulling my hair out. So here is my question, how should I proceed from here?
I have had my rear free hub chewed up to **** and I can not get a replacement from kore either from my LBS, the UK importer or the company themselves!
In kore's infinite wisdom they made some OEM wheelsets of 24/28 instead of any kind of normal standard. In order to get a new wheel built up with a 28h rear hub it would cost ~£60 for the hub, ~£60 for the spokes/nipples/build. I could buy some Planet X A57 wheels for ~£150. It is also VERY difficult to find a 28h rear hub, even from novatec from ebay!
Unfortunately I have read some bad things about these wheels going untrue and denting on touring rides (let alone the toughest CX race in the uk!). I could also potentially get some Fulcrum racing cx 7's for ~£150 but can not find many opinions on them.
What should I do, get a new hub and have it built into my bomb proof, highly praised light kore gradient CX rims with some dodgy tiwanese rear hub OR do I go for some dodgy CX wheelset?
Thanks for your time,
