Re: Sip rims and spanish hubs.

Thanks for the reply. It may be just spanish series 2 and early jets that have fitting issues? I'm sure I read somewhere that they don't always fit spanish rear hubs.

Sip rims and spanish hubs.

Is it both front and rear spanish hubs that don't like sip tubeless rims, or just the rear?

Spanish series 2 frame weakness.

Am I right in thinking the Spanish series 2 has a weak spot regarding the part of the frame where the engine mounting bolt goes through the frame? Is this area prone to failure/cracking? Might put a tuned motor in, so do I need to strengthen this area up?
Thanks.
