    They actually have 3 words on them. Milwaukee Bicycle Co. (ok Co. is an abbreviation)

    Nah, they're definitely not Formulas, at least based on
    their outward apperances.

    i was more looking for... "i have them, 2 years going strong!" or "i had a pair, ripped the threads off the same week i got them."

    all this other **** sounds like speculation to me.

    I know at least 3 people who have them and ride quite a bit. No complaints so far. They've had them between 3-6 monts and all put a fair bit of miles on them.

    I have the nashbar hubs with a couple hundred miles on them, and no problems so far.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

    I don't think they have any words on them. At least from this angle.

    The rear green hub has something written on the right side of it in the pic. Looks to be two lines of text. Either way I have no heard anything good or bad about these...

    You're not going to find that because the ones with Milwaukee Bicycle Co. engraved on them have only been available a few months, but the same hubs with other names engraved on them have held up well, and earned a reputation as a good durable hub on par with Formulas. For those that don't already know Milwakee is Ben's Cycle house brand.

    I have two sets of these hubs.

    1) Nashbar branded - approx 12,000 km on them, replaced rear cartridge bearings after 8000 km
    2) Milwaukee branded - approx 2000 km on them, feel perfect, look blangin

    I weigh 190lbs and ride my bike like its a BMX.

    Both are laced 3x, so don't ask me if the flanges will stand radial lacing.

    no seaneee, never got them, i got kind of a ******** deal on forumlas that was just too good to pass up. however, i think i will grab a set for whatever my next build is, i'm getting bored going back and forth between silver and black and could use some color fun in my life. but i'm already sitting on a pair of resillions and keeping my eyes out for a 32/40 drilled rimset, so who knows when that will be.

    I just ordered a set of 4 stars cause I wanted gold but didn't want to shell out for phil or paul. Should have them by next week. I'll update soon.

    yeah, it is about time, finally got a decent deal. i've seen prettier, but they are still very nice.

    new wheels for a new build or something else? either way, i'd like to see them and what they're going on when they're ready.
