Justice means nothing today...

Actually, it probly does, thats just from the Megadeth song im listening too right now...

Anyways, i was thinking about getting this front wheel, what does everyone think about it:
Mosh Justice Lite front wheel


From what i hear Mosh hubs are from the same factory as the Odyssey hubs, so it cant be too bad...
And either way, im smooth and dont ride pegs...
Its also pretty cheap!

I think there stuff is nice, at least the only part ive ever seen break was that hub's axle because my freind was learning to grind with pegs on it.

And their stem slips a bit too, becuase my same freind has that stem.

Never rode anything from Mosh, but they do not have the best reputation. It is a pretty decently cheap wheel. But for a bit more, I'd get the Demolition Bulimia. Light hub and rim, and the anorexia hub is very good, so I'd imagine the anorexia hub to be good too. Or you could always just get a custom wheel with a hazard light rim and the hub of your choice (such as an anorexia). That still doesn't cost that much more. Something to ponder about.

If i was going to build up a custom wheel, i would get the same rim laced to a Profile mini hub...
But that hub costs $10 less then the whole Mosh wheel all ready to ride. I figure i get the Mosh wheel, and if the hub frys, lace it to a Profile hub...

So I guess you like that rim? I'd get a hazard light, a bunch of my friends have them, and there is no problem with them at all, they are all still perfectly round, no dents.

I have a Hazard LT, its laced to my Shadow cassette in the rear...

I want a lighter rim for the front, and i can do with a lighter hub too since im smooth and dont ever ride pegs...

I forgot about your back wheel. I ride street, so the lightest I would get is the hazard. I'm just not sure about the integrity of the rim. I need a new backwheel soon- mine is beaten up a bit.

If your getting a new wheel i would get a Shadow hub, ive had mine for just about a month now, its it hasnt given my any problems, and a few of my freinds have had theirs longer...

Its really loud too, haha!

But im not worried about the rim, my freind has that rim and hes not smooth at all and its lasted him quite a while now.

Okay, cool. I was looking into the shadow hub, but I like my friend's anorexia too. When I can ride again, I'm gonna tryout his shadow hub. The main reason I want a new back wheel is because I want a cassette because going fakie with a freewheel isn't that great. Mine has absolutely no engagement at all. Also, the anorexia is cheaper.

EDIT: I might also wait for the newer shadow hub to come out.

I used to like them, back in 1986 or so. Dave Mustaine thought he was clever, leaving Metallica.

Dunno. And then Jason left. Another smart move. We all hate Lars, but it's probably hard to beat that steady paycheck.
