|Sigh.....Yup, that's our front porch!|
I am pleased the axle twisted and stripped instead of twisting to snap. I assumed the guts of both hubs to be identical and that an axle swap would be possible. Smartly, Shimano added substance to the disc brake axle. This is good design, but for me, it made my axle swap impossible. Maybe somebody in the world can make use of this knowledge, which Shimano does not readily disseminate.
|Shimano Nexus 8 gritty outer parts after 4 years of four season, medium-high mile usage. This area was accessed to add bearing grease two years ago, and that was the ONLY maintenance performed.|
|Shimano Nexus 8 inner parts-clean for 4 years of abuse! Worth it's weight and investment!|
|Internal gear hub guts, Nexus8(left) axle didn't match the more robust Afine8 axle :(|
