Default New KH Hub, defective??


I just recieved a new KH Hub for the muni I am building and right away,
the orientation of the crank arms looked kinda "off", like they were
not quite at 12 and 6 o'clock. I tried moving them to different
positions on the splines and to the other side, but the odd orientation
remained. In the attached photos, I illustrated this "gap" by
placing both crank arms on the splines at the 12 0'clock position on a
flat surface.

I think this looks like more than just a slight manufacturing error, I
guess I expected more from KH??
Anyone seen this before? What do you think?
Should I ask for a replacement hub/crank arms??

definitely ask for a replacement; you payed for a top of the line hub,
and to settle for less would be an insult to your intelligence.

"umm... how about putting them on the right way?
try and then keep complaining if necessary"

Umm, not complaining, I did try putting them on the right way, but the
arms are off that same 1/4" in the correct positions, making me think
the hub is defective. Point being that I don't want to invest wheel
building time/$$ if the hub is defective.

Other thoughts??

could you switch the cranks around and take another picture? see if the
left side still sticks up with the cranks changed. then you can see if
it's your cranks or your hub that needs to be replaced.

Everyone hates clowns

Ive gone about the whole summer without unicycling, I procrastenated on
sending some cranks back

When I bent my first set of crankarms, I thought it was bad thing; when
i jumped off of a picnic table, well, my photo says it. thats about a
20-30 degree bend.
