Front Wheel build up...

I was looking into getting new wheels for my bike and decided to get a new front wheel that is lighter (along with my long awaited cassette)

so heres the important part of the thread----


Demolition 36h 3/8" front hub VS. Odyssey Race Vandero hub 36h 3/8"


i ride no pegs and mostly trails...

Either go with the Vandero, or get a G-Sport Marmoset or Tree.

tree = too much money

vandero (do you mean the race one or the original?)

and i was thinking about that GSport hub



as far as the Ody race hub, does anyone know if a kink axle will fit into it, because i heard that they make good strong 3/8" axles and i know they fit into vanderos and i also know that my fat ass will probly destroy that hollow 3/8" axle...

If you don't plan on ever running pegs, the Race will probably be fine. I wouldn't recommend it, though.

The right one is, and it says it only has 2 berrings, so if you include the drivers berrings then is it 3 or 4 total? I don't know, I still wouldn't trust them.

What the **** is your problem, I posted a pic of the front, and the rear(cassette), I just didn't want to take the ****ing time to change it so it showed only the rear. If the front has 2 berrings, then the rear isn't going to be any different(minus the driver). So **** off.
