    SRAM Torpedo Hub

    Have you tried it? Do you love it? Do you hate it? I would LOVE to hear some opinions.
    Can anyone give me a ride from Monterey to Big Bear on Wednesday or Thursday?

    I refuse to read about that hub because the website is so bad.

    At least it seems you are actually capable of reading that website. Unlike the rest of us, haha.
    It's bad when you're 19 and people consider you an "old geezer" in the current FG community.

    I'm really curious about this thing. They are at the handmade bicycle show, so there are some out there. SOMEONE here has tried one....

    That web site interface sucks ass.
    My worry is that it says the hub is not suitable for "tandems, transport bicycles or similar". I wonder if that is because the mechanism would fail under heavy torque or if it is an axle load issue. Does it have a hollow axle on one side for the screw mechanism?
    Ride lots, have fun, skid often!
