So my front hub is a complete piece of shit. The bearings suck dick and it's blown out for the third time. And I also just stripped my axle today. I don't even torque the shit out of the axle bolts but my friend did the first time and cracked an axle bolt which was fine after I replaced them. Kink says they can't warranty it since they already warrantied it for free when my friend broke the first Viridian 1 hub. And they can only send me free bearings the first time the hub blows out. So now I'm screwed cause I can't get to school and there were many people who wanted to trade my hub and buy it. This sucks major ass.

I want to know how to get the axle re-threaded without using that gay helicoil shit. I am so screwed because I don't have the money to get the crash replacement and if I do, it's gonna be a bitch to re-lace my wheel again.

you have to use a die to rethread it without a helicoil but a basic 3/8 axle uses a wierd thread count and they dont have a die for that size readily available... so you can rethread it using a 3/8 24tpi and then just make sure to buy a new bolt for it.. btw your axle uses a 3/8 26tpi which again is not readily available. or you can try cleaning up the threads with a dremel. or you can ask kink how muc it is too buy a new axle.. if its male its prob only like 20 bucks or less. if its female it might be a little more..

I already tried it. Weird but I finally re-greased the bolts just today after leaving them with old grease for over half a year. Must've grabbed onto the threads to much and stripped the axle out or something like that.

I don't see what the problem with using a helicoil is, they work wonders. Yes, the early Ratchets had helicoil problems but that was a problem, and not that all helicoils strip out. And it would of been much worse without the helicoil. A helicoil is 6x less prone to stripping than Aluminium thread (Albeit with a non-problematic helicoil and an ordinary grade Aluminium unlike the high grade Aluminium used for Ratchet axles, but still).

And Re-Tapping an Axle really isn't hard.

Find a local bearing shop that sells bearings for like 5 bucks each, and get a set. Boom 10 dollar fix on the bearings.

As to the axle, helicoil or try to find a threader, or an axle to fit.

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

There's plenty of ways to make money just use your skull and think of shit.
I used to go look for old game consoles and shit at yard sales and get em for like 5 bucks. Then I'd tear em apart, clean everything out, replace anything missing/broken and sell them for mad cash money. The parts were only ever like 70 cents.

Now I just do tons of work for family members everyday since I'm still avoiding actually getting a job. I make like 160 a week though which is ace for my age just working through family.

Anywho, that's shitty. But trust me there's money plenty of places you just gotta figure out what works.
