Heat

I find the heat only bothers me when I ride in shoes and jeans which is rare. With real boots and riding pants I don't notice it much.

Bearings

On one of my rear wheels the bore was undersized but was fixed by Woody's Wheel Works. That can lead to early failure as the bearing is a bit crushed. As for the rest I change the bearings every year...

Buzzin

I thought mine was getting buzzy. Then I swapped to my street wheels and couldn't believe how smooth it was. I guess a D606 at 120km/hr is buzzy.:D
