    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".

    That is only one spoke out of 32 and another 32 on the other wheel, thats better then 90% good spokes :) There is someone out there with one short spoke.

    WOW! I thought it was bad finding unfinished holes where the valve stem comes out...I have had a few of those that had a razor sharp burr....and flat tires because of it. (NEXT bikes)
