    No more *****ing about Suzue Jr...

    ...Sr., promax. or whatever other kind of hubs Suzue makes if this is true. Found it while I was perusing the veloshop blog today

    I rode/messed on mine for a loooong time with no lube other than finely ground rust. No problems. Same set are still on my partner's bike, and she puts about 50-100 miles/week on them.

    two years on my Suzue Basics with no problems. what, I'm not a dumbass and used a chainwhip AND and lockring tool? is that all it takes? the way some of you guys paint 'em, it's all luck or all outrage. c'mon, admit it! they were your first threaded hubs, and you screwed up.

    ha!

    bought a Jr as a backup rear, and it's lasted ages, on a bunch of different bikes. Lube the threads, and make sure it's all tight= No real probs.
    Too bad about Suzie tho. Not in the same realm as Phil/DA/Suntour, and spendier than solid basics like IRO and the like. The middle is a bummer place to be if you want to sell stuff.
    I didn't come here, and I ain't leaving.

    Suzue Promax NJS hubs are, for all intents and purposes, the exact same hub as Suntour Superbes.
