Well after 1 year and 1 month of use on my pugsley, I finally managed to break my Alfine 8. So to those that say they are indestructible...sorry, here is one that is destroyed...by someone who is 160 lbs. I serviced it regularly and always made sure that the shift marks were lined up. And up until it failed, it was flawless. Granted, I am a pretty powerful sprinter on the road, and I was giving it some pretty good juice when it let go. I was running a 33 x 20.
My question is this: Any advice on the best course of action here? Is it even worth calling shimano and asking if they'll replace the internals? Should I just purchase another hub and rip out the internals. I have been lusting after some lighter rims for the pugsley, and this may be my opportunity to pull the trigger on that because I am no longer married to this hub.
Any help or advice is much appreciated.
