I can't take credit for it, I got the idea from a friend. He's been commuting daily for a few weeks with no problems. I've only ridden mine for 20 min so far, but I think it should hold up fine.
I think if there was a perfectly sized thin washer to go between the outside spacer and the lock-nut, it would be ideal as they have very little surface contact...but I don't see how there can be much lateral force, if any at all.
The PVC inside diameter fits perfectly over the Shimano freehub, slides on with no play at all.
I'm becoming more convinced that SS is the way to go.
