Disintegration of my Shimano Ultegra Hub

Mile 12 - Something feels a bit amiss. Stop and spin the rear wheel. There's a bit of a wobble, but all the spokes are tight. I'll check it when I get home.

Mile 20 - Stop and give it another spin. It's now got enough of a "wow" that I have to open the brake a bit and a couple of spokes sound a bit funny. Oh well, not far to go.

Mile 32 - Well, there's the problem.

I weight 210 and have put 28,642 miles on it, so don't think I will be sending it back for warranty replacement.
