    "Delivery time to Great Britain (excluding Northern Ireland) 6-11 days"

    No idea if there are any extra taxes or charges though

    there's a 15mm one here and then you can use your 12mm endcaps

    yeah, it totally makes sense that if the internal diameter of the shell is the same, then you can use the TA bearings and endcaps. i didn't even consider that was a possibility until i saw this thread.

    but, but, but... how do you get the qr axle out? support the shell at one end and bang the axle with a hammer at the other?

    I have these hubs as well and didn't realise you could just take them apart. how did you get the axle out?

    I had a spare socket so I swapped it and that seems to work. I didn't know socket testers existed though so thanks for the tip.

    why would an electrical socket have low power?

    we have a double socket that is branched off another (working) double socket and it doesn't work. I put a volt finder tester on it today and it lit up so there must be some power. then I got a lamp and plugged it in but it didn't come on despite the tester saying there was power in the cable. the lamp works elsewhere.

    we got the electrics updated about 6 years ago but I'm not sure these sockets have ever worked. they're not in a very convenient location so I've ignored it but now I've realised that it's probably the only place that the kids wouldn't hear a turbo trainer from their bedroom.

    is it likely to be something as dumb as loose connections in one of the sockets?
