Thanks guys. It seemed fairly dry to be honest with the old finger test my finger was completely dry after running it over the engagements and driver assembly. (Queue puns)

I'd contact halo but it just cost me £32 to post my old wheelset in the post so for all the hassle I'd rather ride it for now as it is rideable, and order the tool and drive ring cause I plan to have this wheel set for a while if it runs well it would probably do me a favour to have the tool if they do wear down quickly it should be a pretty quick replacement.

Cheers for the help lads will probably be on here moaning about it if it still skips, at that point I'll contact halo haha!

I wouldn't personally say that they wear quickly, I ride 1-2 times a week and I've had the same hubs for 2 years without replacing anything except bearings.

That's what I don't quite understand mate. The wheels are brand new, only about a month old.

I just purchased a new frame. I was disappointed to see rust under the clearcoat coming from the headtube guesset and a bit at the dropouts. I was told I shouldn't worry about it because it's electro plated and I'll get a 2 year extended warranty on the head tube. Thoughts on it?

Structurally, sure I guess it'll be fine. But aesthetically I wouldn't want my brand new frame to have a huge rust mark on it, I'd be telling them I want a new one.

Chemical strip the clear and use WD40 to keep it fresh, its the only way now....

I'd suggest that if I paid new prices then I'd want a new bike, if I get a bike with rust under the clearcoat then I'd want the price to reflect that.

Thanks, I requested a refund or replacement frame. I'd be happy with a partial refund but paying full price for that just didn't sit right with me..

What is it? I don't recognize that gusset

Does anyone know about silicon bronze welded frames? I rode a bmx frame made like that in spain once, and i saw the DH bike here on PB that was welded with bronze. Sounds cool but isnt being applied much. Is it weaker than regular chromoly frames ?
