Can anyone enlighten me on the change to the rear hub on T100's?
I have a vague memory of reading the the hub design was changed due to breaking spokes.
I ordered new stainless spokes from Buchanan's and when we went to fit them we discovered that the spokes have a 90 degree bend where as my OEM hub needs straight spokes.
My bike is listed as a 2008 (02/08) and I ordered spokes for a 2008 rear wheel. I don't think it's Buchanan's fault BTW and the front spokes fit beautifully
Any thoughts or info (I may also have a set of rear spokes for sale if return postage is as expensive as I fear)
. . . While I don't think Triumph ever responded to complaints of broken spokes on the old design rear hubs, the fact that the hub got redesigned and uses straight pull spokes speaks volumes.
