I got them and I like them. I think...
It is nice, one small spot where the anodize did not touch. Looks like a tiny silver spot, no big deal. The hubs are gun metal gray and the color looks great.
They are very ugly (knew this when I bought them), but easily ignored. Might try to remove them, any suggestions that would not ruin the finish?
Pretty dang good. Not as nice as my Pauls, but nice. The bearings are smooth and the hardware seems tough. The machining on the hub itself is really nice, no noticeable flaws.
Here is my concern:
I ordered these for the Rob Roy GB with 130mm spacing thinking that the hub shell would be wider like 130mm hubs I have had in the past, but all they did was put spacers on the axle to make it wider. Does that seem weird to anyone else? I guess it could be nice if I ever wanted to use these in a 120mm spaced frame. I wonder if could cause any stress etc. on the hub with hard riding? I plan on using this for some off road duty like light single track and CX riding.
