Im looking to doing quite a long journey (London - Poland) on my Spec Sirrus. I just want to make sure that nothing fails me on the way there.
Recently I saw a couple of bikes with different types of hubs, they were kind of bulky with protracting spoke slots. I found out that they're called straight pull hubs. Are they in any way superior to traditional hubs? I have Mavic A719's 36 spokes each. Are there any other things it is recommendable I should look into before setting out to make sure Im fully prepared?
