Anyone ever seen a 3.5 year old Neutron hub corrode like this?

What about the rear hub

Is the rear hub a Neutron? Is the wheel going out of true? Has if failed yet?

that's ugly. is that just salt air or sweat, too?

no trainer time spent on this if thats what youre asking. just that ultra-corrosive salt air here. This morning my aluminum Bianchi's frame mostly disintegrated from yesterdays ride.

there was a pile of gray powder on the floor with components mixed in.

hmmm. Campy is only suitable for inland locations I guess. ;) None of my other components have ever done this.
Perhaps none of your other components incorporate high tension spokes pulling on a hub shell constructed like this?

Wheels are pretty volatile and susceptible to damages of all sorts. A low spoke count wheel is something I always consider to have a limited duty cycle. We tend to see them fail in other manners, but the way that hub shell is designed, I am not surprised that the rim outlasted it.

Why is the cause of damage so clear? I doubt he rode his bike in the ocean. I have a beater bike that has lived on my balcony and outdoors since the early 90's. It has less corrosion.

Huez.....you are in luck. Take it up to Carlsbad (Campy USA HQ) and roll it in the front door.
