Anyone here have a set? Other than color options and no flange cut-outs, are these more or less the same as the older Formula hubs they offered?
Also, are the logos screened on? Anyone have any luck removing them without damaging the color anodizing?

i have a set of black ones. i really cant tell a difference from the old ones which i also ride. the bearings are supposed to be better, but its like splitting hairs to really tell a difference if you ask me. the lettering is on there pretty good. i heard a couple guys saying there was some product out there they used to remove the lettering, search for the thread. i just used some black nail polish and painted over it. worked alright, no flaking off over the last three months and looks fine from farther than two feet away.

i have a set that i've yet to build up, so i can't say much about how they ride, but i agree that the lettering is on there darn well. i thought it was etched at first.
I took off the decals of my hubs by dabbing some Jasco on it for a few seconds. Came right off. The anodizing was untouched.
I have at least 800 miles on mine thus far, including some rain/mud, and they've been awesome. Thumbs up thus far.

Thanks for all the above posts. I tried searching but could only find mention of acetone.

are these the same as the ones they were selling for $30? I got a set of those to have as a spare/parts lying around and to perhaps build into a new wheelset (beater/budget)
