The prototype seemed to be robust enough, but I haven't done any Finite Element Analysis yet, I'll be doing that next year and I imagine that the design will get a little more refined as well as...

Here's mine. All City Nature Boy, fixed 36x16 for the winter and the hills, and I just cruise slowly in the summer. Studded winter tires, 2mmx1.5mmx2mm spokes, Dyad rims.356360

I would imagine that the hub would be cast with a little bit of machining to finish it off. The prototype was machined from a billet, but we machined away probably 80$ worth of aluminum.

I think I...

Yeah I've seen that one, it's interesting. The only thing is what happens when you're in rural Vietnam and you break an axle or freehub? The parts aren't standard.

If you're interested in the exact tension ratio specs, it's 1.25 for non-drive triple cross, and 1.15 for non-drive quadruple cross, versus 1.6-1.7 for something like a Shimano XT.

244 mm on the drive side, 280 mm on the non-drive side. The drive side flange is 65mm radius, with 4 degree offset between the spoke holes, and the non-drive side flange is 50mm radius with no offset.

Johan, that's so that you can remove broken spokes and lace fresh ones in without interference from the hub flange or the rest of the spokes. You'll notice that the drive side is laced single cross...

I'm not sure how much they cost yet, it depends on how much demand there is. I would guess about 100$ for a complete hub though, so 150$ to 200$ for a nice rear wheel.
