    I just smashed my king axle a day or two ago, and that was all fine and dandy, but I just found out that I have demos to do this weekend, and no rear wheel. I'm VERY desperate to find either a replacement axle (bolt on, fun bolts, quick release, anything) or a new hub, or a wheel. I'll come get it where ever you are in colorado, or pay for overnight or anything. I'll buy it, or rent it, what ever it takes to get my bike riding by saturday!

    Chris King is out for 6 to 8 weeks, and it doesn't seem like any of the shops have the part...

    Not in dire need like Pancho, but same here, this CK situation with Webcyclery and then CK being so behind on parts anyway is frustrating.

    Thats my worst case, but hopefully I can find some thing used, or somebody will let me rent something for like $40...

    ah... $40 sounds good. come get it, but you will probably want5 to grind it... and then you can fuck up the rim as you wish, it has a slight wobble... but for $40, i could get a new rim too! but hopefully you will be able to find a better solution... lemme know.

    Ok, I think I have several plans, so no worries at this point. King is shipping me a regular axle that will be here friday, and there's a chance I might have a bolt on HD axle machined for me here in town. Thanks tho...
