Never had any issues. I thought it a little strange that the design of the bulkheads wont even allow one to be put on. They do look cool though.

Has anyone had any issues swapping out their spur? I had to use a hammer to pound the pin that holds the 20 tooth pully in and out...
Obviously this does not make it easy..

There should be set screws that hold the pins in place.

+1 On the set screws. I bought my first D05 a year ago used and had the same problem... until I realized there are set screws down the center of the shaft. After that light bulb moment, they fall out once you loosen the screw even 1/8 turn.

who is eating up all the C hubs??????? none of the venders seem to have any. Im sure yall like myself see the slopp wear into the top ball cup screw. Im wondering if a threaded insert would provide enough support and not wollow out the the ball cup desogn now does. Its hard to keep consistant camber with all that wollowing around.

Never had an issue either, with mine still on the originals had it for 6 months. I put many many laps on it this summer on the outdoor track we have here. It is still tight.
