it shouldn't cause any issues. we used the park tools for doing it and the frame companys tweak their frames around all over. it was the chain side drop out and it was angled top to bottom. the shop owner got it dialed in pretty good now though. he called brg to get their go ahead but never got a response so we did what we had to do. you can bet if i do break it i will be getting ahold of them though.

Park tools for what? Fixing the frame or building it.

Its a shame Chase doesn't have a Phone number or any contact info on thier site. That one blows my mind.

New tires added. Planning on getting a deviant front and a GDH spindle. That would lose me almost 12 oz. I love spending money on this bike.

How are the Excess wheels doing for you?

A fellow racer has a set that warped during it's first race. No crashes, cases or crooked landings, just warped from riding the track and got worse moto thru moto. Got soo bad that he had to borrow a bike for the main.

Weird or just plain weak?

Could that have been a spoke tension problem? I would imagine wheels expand and contract a bit during the shipping process to Hawaii.

That could be it. Even a crappy wheel set shouldn't warp from just riding. He has experience building wheels so maybe that's something he should of looked at before riding, or maybe he already did, idk, I gotta ask him.

To be fair, Pete Dylewski is a member here and if you contact him via email he is pretty fast on the response.

Sounds like they did not stress relieve the wheel after building. Or it could have been machine built and nipples my not have been lubed so spokes were twisted due to nipple not moving on thread smoothly. Check to see if spokes cross under each other on last cross. Like on a 3 cross it supposed to go over first 2 spokes it crosses and under the last 3rd spoke it crosses. If it goes over all crosses it is machine built.
