right, i'm pretty sure that the new mag has the hub in it, since i can see that the sprockets are still on it. and i think that you can see it in the pics.
the thing that i was thinking of came from the moped warehouse's description of the 5 star mags that they sell. it says that they come with 12 mm axles and that you can use your existing your existing brake plates if you have a 12mm axle.
from the description "(you can reuse your existing brake plates if you have the 12 mm axle . If you have the 11 mm axle you will have to enlarge the hole of the brakeplate )."
so, i realize that these are not the same mags that i bought (snowflakes). but now that i've seen that page. i'm thinking that the problem may be that i've got the wrong size axle? maybe not. any thoughts or comments?
