    In exchange for removing the cutouts? These hubs look like toys, they'll probably fly off the shelf at first.

    I thought iro hubs were just rebranded formulas...but they don't look like formulas.

    Just a different flange or totally different?

    According to the IRO site they use stainless steel cartridge bearings.

    The gunmetal ones would look rad with an old set of Rigidas I have laying around. I might have to actually buy something new for once.

    No, I think he is saying that white hubs will be "dingy gray" after street use.

    no I don't think so those loose ball hubs don't have the beveled flange like the sealed bearing ones. I think they are the same as the normal formula hubs just without the cutouts and printing in place of the cutouts.

    in other news, a group buy for already-inexpensive hubs?

    They're 100 for the pair but I only really want to spend like 97 because I have 100 exactly and I want to buy a REDBULLLLLLLL!


    energy!

    Now people won't have to go out and spend too much money on phils they don't really need just to get that bling anno'd look!

    I do really like the look of these hubs though, and Surlys have always been a good value for a street-use fixed hub.

    unfortunately they still have axles long enough
    to fit three sets of track ends (two if aluminum).

    ...or, perfect for pegs.
