Spun my 2nd rear axle... sucks!

Went in for tires yesterday.... cam on right side axle twisted for the 2nd time chewing up the axle! Can't torque the axle down without the wheel kicking sideways.... ok... replace it under warranty.... sure.... NONE IN STOCK!!

SO... leaving on Friday morning for a 3 day ride, I decide to upgrade...

Zipper chromoly rear axle... $399... OUCH!

But she's not gonna move anymore...lol
