- Is it just me or are a lot of components made badly now?
Everything seems to be made of cheese all of a sudden!Posted 5 years ago
This is all on a recent build of mine within 2 – 3 months:
Reynolds wheels went back (excessive play in the rear hub), currently being fixed.
XT Shadow Plus lost all tension, replaced.
X0 cranks splines not mating properly, bad forging, replaced.
Revelations weren’t getting full travel, fixed.
That should all be good kit and at least they’ve all been rectified but that’s a lot of grief and downtime.
Is it just bad luck or the way things are?
They’re not grey imports either…
