Cassete hubs or flip-flop hubs????
 
most people say that cassette hubs are better becuase you can run smaller drivetrains and the cog/freewhel (or whatever you want to call it) is built into the hub...but if your not going to run anything smaller than a 36-13 then whats the point in buying a cassete hub if you allready have a flip-flop hub that works fine and every once in a while you blow out a freewheel???

Because cassette hubs engage quicker and are higher quality than ****ty freewheels. And also, they save some weight and some cassette's come with three or four cogs so you can change it around anytime you want. I'm hoping on moving up to a cassette hub sometime. Does anybody have any recomedations for a good quality cassette hub(s)?

Cassett hubs seem easier to find in catalogs then flip flop hubs, so i would say go with a cassett for that reason, puls there built better, i'm thinkin about getting on my self in the near future.

Freewheels arent *********ty, they work fine and if your not going for lower gearing, who cares about how fast it engages. He's allready got a flip-flop he said. There's not really a point in getting a cassette in his case.

the best freewheel hub is a Gsport hub 'bullet proof'
odysseys 05 cassette is nice!, strong, and cheaper than most

i hate bike shops... Bunch of *******s that try to rip you off with a crappy gt or rip people off 1500 dollars for a piece of junk mountain bike. some one i know bought a jamis durrango sx for $1100 when i saw that same exact bike on a website for $600...

Brian 04-07-05 04:15 PM

CMcMahon 04-07-05 11:41 PM

Gets you a wheelset, or maybe a decent fork, but not much in the way of a whole bike.

If a wheel set or forks for an MTB costs that much, i better be able to sex with it.

Then I suggest a fork with oil rather than air.

I was thinking a frame would run around $500, but, yeah, that too.

You're the one that want's to have sex with a bike, not me.

Here, you can't have sex with it, but you can bring along a partner. Figure about AU$10-12k though.

All i was saying is i couldn't see why any one would pay Half a grand for forks or a wheel set for a bike, What is so special about these wheels or fork that makes them this much?
