Ok so the wheel builder at Cycles Uk in Romford noticed some hair lined cracks when the spokes was removed so a new rim was needed! As I was going on holiday the next day & didn't want anything to flash as said its just my training bike they ordered up a Mavic 317 & new set of spokes as 9 where damaged! They was meant to rebuild it when I was on holiday but ended up building it this morning, which was abit of a pain but all sorted now!

I've had similar happenings at Chelmsford cycles uk. Took my old Marin in for a service and said I was away for a few days, they said it will be done over this time and ready. Went back to pick it up, but bike was still where they left it, not touched. So got them to do it whilst I shopped near by, don't take any of my bikes back there now....

Sounds like a car MOT job Simon. You go in for a simple job and they always find something else to add.

MTB cos other sports require only 1 ball
