Hi guys I got my new cannondale synapse tiagra a few days ago and Its a great bike im happy. However Ive had a problem twice.

The front wheel seal cap on the hub came off and just rattled about. These are forumla hubs. I phoned up who i bought the bike from and they sent me a new wheel. Just got back from my ride and same thing has happend again on the same side. The hub seal cap has again come off and is rattling about.

????? Why is this are these just crap hubs? Surely this shouldnt happen. Or Am I just unlucky.

    Probably cr@p hubs - the cap is probably only a dust seal, so shouldn't affect the function of the hub.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
