So I'm 6 months in on my Tracer 275, and I am stoked. This bike is a lot of fun, and I am looking forward to putting many, many more miles on this bike.
But before that happens I'm gonna have to fix a problem and I'd like to know if it's a failure others have experienced or if this is a fluke. The freehub on the Novatec wheels that came with the XT build spec has failed. Basically the machined part of the freehub body where the pall sits has sheared and bent/twisted. I've been riding more than a decade and never seen this particular failure on any wheel/bike. Is this a material/workmanship problem?
PS- I realize this is a Novatec wheel, but I'm posting to this board since it came as part of the build kit, and I assume there to be other users of this wheel here.
PPS- My post is not intended as a complaint, but rather to ask for experiences from others. Failures happen, even on well made, quality equipment. For the record this bike is the most fun and nicest bike I've ever owned.
