I have a plus that is just over 1 month old, and less than 150 miles. I am just getting really comfortable and learning tricks. I feel like I am 4 weeks into my two month honeymoon with the OW. But she needs to go back to FM for servicing. The hub is clicking, popping and grinding when it's spun by hand with the power off, and sounds really bad when I ride it.
The prospect of being without my new favorite thing to do is terrible. Seems like 1 month turn around time is average at FM. Likely be longer with the holidays, and the shipping crunch that takes place around xmas time.
My question is how do I justify buying a second board when it seems to me that there will be a high probability of my new board having the same issue? Feels to me like I would be rewarding FM with another sale, on a product that may have some reliability issues.
I really love this machine, and am torn as to what to do here. 150 miles of riding and a major service is now required, makes me wonder how often something like this will be taking place in the future....
Has anyone bought a second board for the reasons I am considering?
