DT Swiss makes replacements. You can get em thru QBP.

You're really not gonna lose much if you just replace the hub. They were just OK FWIRemember

You and me both! The last time I attempted it on my Giant FSR, I came down hard on a rock after missing a climb and warped my rear rotor as well as put a 1/4" dent in my rear triangle. We were standing on the frame using the picnic tables under the shelter as a prybar to straighten it out enough to ride again. I actually like Boyette much better. It flows so well and everything connects better. Alafia is good for a technical challenge though. My friend is also a SWAMP club member, so you should run into him at some point.

PB Blaster is awesome stuff. Soak it with PB. Put the hub back together and screw the QR end on so that the end of the QR axle almost pokes through. Now hit it with a hammer. If that does not work it might be time for a new hub or a new wheel.
If the QR is seized in the front hub, how is the rest of the bike? Check the bottom bracket, rear hub bearings, the rear freehub is probably trashed, head set bearings, pull the seat post and grease it, have the suspension fork overhauled.
Bikes and water don't mix. I have been seeing a lot of bikes in the shop this year with issues because of the wet spring we had. One customer was riding to DC and the C&O path was flooded by 1-2 feet of water. He did 130 miles of riding in water that day. Needless to say his bike was trashed. There was water everywhere, it even contaminated the oil in his Fox fork and filled his damper full of muck.
Another customer was riding with some buddies and came across a swollen creek crossing. They decided to swim across with their bikes. The customer came in with a $3500 bike that he bought a few months ago with almost every bearing locked up. We had to rebuild everything.

PB and the heat gun did the trick. I will check the bottom bracket next. I'm unemployed so new parts are not on the agenda. The hub bearings were fine. I will pull the rear hub a part and check it. Thanks for the suggestions. L'll pull the forks apart and grease the coil springs and check the cartridge. The front wheel was off and got submerged. The bottom bracket was submerged. The rear hub may not have been under. The bike was not ridden in this condition so hopefully with some maintanence everything will be o.k.

Thumb good people

Got an email response today. SRAM is out of juicy 3's so they will be upgrading me to Elixir 3s . My bicycle was purchased from Competitive Cyclist ( as we have no Santa Cruz dealers anywhere close) and they have been a pleasure to deal with. Customer service has been top notch with quick responses to any question I had. Would purchase from them again .

On another note, I placed 2nd in the Powerade N.C. state games crit today. Got away with 4 other riders and lapped the field a few times before drilling the sprint.

Way to go Ridge! the Coaching is helping?

If by helping you mean decimating my physical strength and will to get out of bed the next morning... then yes.

Seriously, his AT intervals have me working harder and drilling myself into the ground worse than any race day. We need to do some more moto-pacing when I get on a regular schedule with the workouts.

We'll do that. I had a freind I used to train with when I raced,His bit of advice among many. Race hard,Train harder. Racing should be easier than your training workouts.

There's nothing like waking up in morning and saying WTF did I do to my self. ( Sore muscles not severe hangover)

The more you hurt in training, the less you hurt racing. That little mantra has worked for me for years. Too bad its so damn tough to do on your own.

I've done both. Of the two, I prefer the sore/stiff legs feeling than queasy, gonna puke cause I drank too much feeling.

I let myself have 4 hangovers/year. I'm at 2 right now. As much as I'm riding, I don't want the other two! Interferes too much
