Default Re: Getting new bike and engine, please help with a few suggestions!!

the rag joint does work fine, hundreds and hundreds of them in use, they do work better on wheels with large spoke because they do put a good amount of stress on the spokes, many peoe use them for years even on 14ga spoke wheels without having problems.

I've run them on both 14ga and 12ga spokes, never a single issue on the heavy duty spokes but during wheel inspection I've had broken spokes on two of my wheels with 14ga spokes, I ride in rough conditions and I ride hard and fast most of the time so that ould have something to do with my broken spokes on those wheels.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
