Sounds like you have a new candle-holder in you possession. A broken hub flange, particularly in the front, can be a disastrous event when it breaks causing the wheel to fold. I've had a rear flange break and all that happened was the wheel jammed it self against the chainstay making me skid to a stop. My advice would be to stop riding the wheel and look for a new hub. ciao, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives SB, CA --
