i know, old news, right? but it seems that suzue hubs are the cheapest option available to the poor bicycle converter. sadly, they are garbage, which i discovered after a recent tune-up. the mechanic told me that he had tightened my front hub a little, and my back hub A LOT (and he had shown me before fixing it so i know he's on the level). he said that a lot of people at his shop converted bikes using suzue hubs last summer and they all had the same problem.
next time i'll spend more money on better parts, saving that money on later tune-ups.
