Bloody Mavic. The stupid lock nut on my Mavic crossrides (cassette side) has broken. It's not like a normal lock nut either, it has what can only be described as built-in spacers on either side. one of these spacers has broken, it's the one that fits into the drop-out to prevent the thread from screwing away at the dropouts.

After searching for a spare part on the interwebs all night last night and finding nothing, I took the bike into the LBS who said that a replacement needs to be ordered direct from Mavic, who will charge £5 for carriage and are notoriously slow at sending out replacement bits.

What REALLY grinds my gears is that I was offered a mint condition Spesh P2 cromo last week for £250, but decided to spend the money on bling for the existing bike instead.

It really sucks to be out of action due to such a small part.

Even considered buying a new hub just so I didnt have to miss a couple of weeks. :roll:
