Neither do I, nor am I willing to spend that much on a bike, but how much does it cost to take a double look at the components I was talking about? Especially the hub. I like some of the Micargi bikes, but after reading what I read on Ratrod bikes, I would definitely double check some things. As for the the spokes. All you need to do is just get that stock wheel relaced or do it yourself.
