Bikes: Lots. Mostly steel. Mostly heavy. Mostly geared, and very low, at that.

I haven't seen the Dimension hubs yet either. They're probably pretty similar to the formula or nashbar hubs. As long as the aluminum is strong enough to hold the threads properly, I wouldn't see anything against them. They're sealed bearing, basic hubs, and they're better than the Suzue Basic hubs.

My LBS showed these to me, and I noticed the cutouts right away. Same as the Nashbar's. These come in black though.
