Is my Mix shitting out? (Update)

Okay, so the last few days my Mix has felt like complete shit. I've taken care of it. Its been skipping, and the engaging has just felt like shit. I'm really hard on my drivetrain though so i'm thinking thats why. I push down super hard when I start to pedal and do constant half cab tricks and stuff like that. Should I try to replace the parts or just retire it and get a Javelin next month?

I was supposed to be getting Animal RS rims, and Animal Akimbo's but I may be ditching the Akimbos out for the rear Javelin.

Opinions. I really don't want to make the wrong choice. The hub is old, and is pretty used, but taken care of EXTREMELY well. I just didn't think it'd be shitting out so soon.

Opinions please.

That's what i'm thinking. If i'm getting the Javelin, that means i'm also getting the V3 sprocket!

did you try taking apart your hub and regreasing it ? you might be able to fix it and sell it for more

btw i hope you like loud hubs , my friends javelin sounds like a fucking swarm of wasps coming at you

Have you taken it apart to see if the pawls are worn.
If so just buy the cult match pawls and replace the old ones.
Plus if you can get it working again there is always someone looking for a mix to trade with or buy.

It was just greased a week ago, and it doesn't just feel like pawls. It just feels like alllll around shit. I mean, i'll go home and look at it later, and then go ride and probably have a final decision later. I can't find anyone that wants a Mix, which I found odd. I know its fixable, I'd rather just get a new hub, and have a all around matching wheelset.

I may just say fuck it, and buy another front Javelin and just buy a whole wheelset so I can just sell my whole current wheel set.

I don't know yet. I'll probably just get the rims, rear Javelin, and sprocket. I gotta see how much I get for my birthday next month.

Still try to get the rear Javelin to match the front one.
And the sprocket to match it.
Then get rims when you have the cash, hope you can get them all together for your B-Day, that would be dope.

Well it looks like it's a bit too late, but honestly I'd have just fixed the mix up. It was likely it just needed new pawls/springs.

I love Animal, but their rear hub uses a single C clip spring which is inferior to the leaf spring stlyes

|

5/7/2013 2:30 PM

Are you relacing the front javelin by yourself. if not it might be the same cost or only a little more to just get whole new one. Btw the javelin is sick love mine wouldn't trade it for any other hub.

Have not ordered it yet, @Sunday. I may try new springs and shit. I do really want full animal wheels though. I have a decision I need to make. Either Akimbos or a rear Javelin. And yeah, I lace my wheels myself.

Freddy man i know its not quite the same but im getting myself a new wheelset, I usually get pretty much all my stuff from Empire & ALWAYS get my wheels from Empire, Tom builds some fucking quality wheels but he cant get me some of the stuff i want because of whats being imported, SHITTY Distros (However im sure they are great people, just not getting what i want in lol) So ive been looking into getting my set up from the UK. I know where im gunna order it, i know the guys well, but ive never ordered wheels from them. Ive been talking to the owner & he assures me he will build them for me personally & will do it at a competitive price but its changing from what i know! Im sure it doesnt help with your situation but you'll have matching wheels & thats badass!

I would do wheels first Ute having problems with your wheel you have now y put more money into it if your going to get a new one anyways

Do the javelin not the cranks unless your cranks have absolutely gone to shit, but still I'd rather have a solid rear wheel than have bad cranks(if that is the case)

Yeah, my cranks are good. I have 48s Mechaniks. Yeah, not the best sounding, but they're really solid. I think I fixed the hub. I'm trying to trade it for a freecoaster and then get the full animal rear wheel. I'l have a cassette wheel and a freecoaster wheel.

Do this for sure! Sounds like a good plan I always wanted to have a free coaster wheel to mess around with, but never cared enough to actually buy one
