Default LOL China

They have set a new low standard of quality control with this one. Came off of a Mood Dog front wheel I had apart today while installing studded tires. Did they not notice the spoke was 1/2" too long.

For the life of me, I can't figure out how I've ridden 300 miles on this and not had a flat.

Wow... amazing on 2 fronts.

That is good!!! Ya gotta love it! You must have had a tough inner tube.

With the global economy spiraling downward you can expect a lot more of this.

Oh well, the price is still good. It beats having to make a wheel from scratch.

I guess the lesson is "check everything".

I guess it could have worse. They could have bent it over with a hammer!
