P-fix Replacement Axle

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on 06/15/2012 by FGFSNYC

After snapping my P-fix axle about 2 months ago, i finally got a hold of a replacement.
Specialized didn’t Honor their lifetime warrant but, i somehow got some replacements just incase i ever snap it again.
Im selling some for 25$ if any of my blog readers need them. You can find them on the Web Store 

Here are some pictures of the snapped one and the new replacement!

Many Professional Riders go really big on this P-fix hub, i dont know why it failed on me.
I am Now bikeless waiting to see if my LBS is going to find me a replacement axle  or get me a new one from specialized since it has a lifetime warranty.

*update*

HOW TO install a hub guard on your p-fix

Posted in HOW TO's with tags , , , , , , , , on 01/13/2012 by FGFSNYC

This is the first installment of the HOW TO section of this blog, i plan to show all my readers how to install or modify anything they request or i find is needed.

First up is!
HOW TO INSTALL A HUB GUARD on your NEW P-FIX!

What you’ll need:
– a hacksaw with many blade replacements
– a vice grip or anything to hold down a bolt
– a p-fix rear hub
– a fbm 14mm hub guard (this tutorial is made for this hubguard)
– tools to remove and install your wheel and cone nuts

STEP 1
remove the cone from the non-driveside (you’re going to cut it down to the correct size)
and place it on your vice-grip or a surface were you can go to work on.
STEP 2
cut it right before the bolt shape ends.

HI-RES

I snapped this photo about a week ago when i decided to go riding alone at 3am. As many of you know, NYC is an icebox right now but i managed to stay out for about 3 hours riding around the industrial area of my neighborhood.  Its getting painful to ride more than 20 minutes with the wind chills but i was bundled up and determined to ride. About an hour in, i decided to stop at a Dunkin Donuts to get some coffee and thats when i had the chance to take my camera out and take this.

Enjoy and keep shredding!
