Someone mentioned that it may be possible to use a Shimano XT hub or just some parts from it. Does anyone know anything about this?

I typically tighten mine to 33 ft-lbs. Make sure you get them at least to minimum torque specs, because if they loosen up, your cranks can get rounded off (aka destroyed) pretty quickly.
