Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

What do you mean by "legit"?

I'm sure it's a good hub, but it's just the front. You can use any hub you want on the front. It's not worth the kind of price that an NJS hub will garner.
Maybe if you already happen to have the matching rear...but then you wouldn't be asking.

If it is really a Suntour Superbe hub, then its worth the money. But it has no sticker... Boo...
