    Anyone using this hub?

    Not interested in getting one at the moment, but I'm curios to how well it holds up.

    I haven't thought about those in years. A friend picked one up after FGG reviewed them a jillion years ago, and he liked it. I don't know much about long term durability because we live in different cities now, but it seemed nice at the time.

    Advantages:
    Will not strip, ever, no matter what.

    Disadvantages:
    Proprietary everything.

    The disadvantages outweigh the advantages. Especially if you actually maintain your bike. Having said that, those hubs are ultra high quality. They're not especially light weight but they are beefy.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve
