    ZIPP 202 Firecrest clincher Rear hub failure

    I just noticed a wobble in my rear wheel and on close inspection realized that a chunk of the flange containing one spoke had broken out. Anyone else experienced this? Anyway to add a photo in this forum?

    Why do we need to see a photo? Your hub flange broke. Since it seems like you haven't bothered to do any looking into how the forum works (it's the exact same as most others...) try this:

    I broke a flange once. I did a front wheelie stopping, and when the rear came down, the impact broke the flange, without damaging the rim.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    But did you immediately join RBR to let everyone know? And then ask how to post photos because you couldn't figure it out?
