The Bike Shop / MTB hub help.
« on: August 23, 2016, 09:01:29 PM »
As luck would have it, some dude off a local trail conditions Facebook group just gave me a free set of Hadley wheels. His bike was wrecked 2 years ago from an accident, got hit by a car. The rear wheel was all fucked up, in 4 pieces, thin Crest rim with bladed spokes. The hub appears completely fine though.. No spokes were pulled through, not even gouged into the aluminum at all. Axle rotates freely and smooth. Trying to eyeball it by hand slowly spinning it, I can't see any deformation at all.

Question. Am I good? Do I need to measure if it's perfectly round first? I got rims on the way but haven't ordered spokes yet. I don't want to build it up if it's going to be off centered or somehow "off".

The Bike Shop / Fairdale Taj or SS mtb

Someone here in town is offering a like new (looks barely ridden) Fairdale Taj for $350. Anyone have experience on one? Are they safe to jump and ramp around? We're moving to Colorado soon and there's a couple small dirt jump parks/pump tracks around and I thought since I sold my BMX maybe this would cure the itch. Plus seems like I could use it as a bar cruiser too.

My other thought is would a dirt jump oriented SS mtb be a better idea and is anything in the $500 and under (used) category even worth looking at?
