Dave McDermott’s Indestructible Front Wheel


Recently, our Floridian surfing hippy Affiliate Dave McDermott told a story about his front Javelin hub:
“I built up this wheel about two years ago while I was in New Jersey. The next day I found that i-beam over the loading gap dock. We went to go shoot that smith, it took me like twenty tries, and all my spokes broke and was completely trashed in a half hour. I had to re-lace the hub, but it’s still going. The marks from that are still on it.”
