He didn't want to listen when I warned him so he ended up walking. When he brought it in, the inner race in the hub was completely gone. No cup at all, just a hole.
Much as I love these bikes, pushing or carrying one bites rancid monkey junk.

Yeah, I've tightened these things 3 times in the last couple of months. I've already decided to buy a new wheel if it needs it again soon.
You're never lost until you run outa gas.
