Sooooo what was once "bombproof" is now destroyed, broke my Shadow Rant V2 last night.

I don't know how it happened it just did, my tire was touching my frame, tried to realign it, didn't work, thought I bent my rim, realized my hub was dead.

Im looking at the Animal Javelin laced to 7k-a, along with trying to get it warrantied and the new one resold

get a nitrous? then you can just save up some money and replace it when it breaks :D. i wouldn't do that even though it's smart i'd probly just wait till' i can afford a good one. but that does suck dude. my stem snapped and my bars flew right off and bent really bad so i had to buy new ones. but i had money saved up so it was no big deal.

Profiles are a general crap hub. The Mix and Profile feel EXACTLY the same, and the Rant V2 has more engagement than both of them. You pay for the name of a Profile, and that's it.

That's crazy! If i were you i'd get that hub warrantied and ride it again! Rants are amazing as i'm sure you know. To be honest if they still made Rant hubs i'd trade my Profiles for them any day!

Up to you though Sean! Just letting you know, if you're going to pay $85 - $95 for a rim, the Ribcage is going to be the better option, it's cross laced and i believe a guy on here said that he has both rims (7KA and Ribcage) and the Ribcage requires truing less often.

I changed my mind to Cinema rims and then both front and rear Animal hubs

Thats a gnarly break.

I asked God for a bike.
But I know God doesn't work that way.
So I stole a bike and asked God for forgiveness.

First of all, how in gods name does this mean that profiles are better? That's like not buying anything from a company cause one part broke, that's ignorant. Secondly, Profiles are a perfectly fine hub for what their meant for....RACING.

And as for you, I would say just warranty your hub and ride it for a whole 'nother two years, don't see the logic in buying a whole wheel set when you can get a new hub for free. If that's not the case then I would buy a remix/mix, I've had my mix for quite a while now and I don't see any problems with it, cheap as fuck too.
