just wondering if anyone has any information to gaining prices lists of components?
noticing that you can pay through the roof for some parts on eBay and knowing what somethings market/resale value would be useful so you can make an informed decision as to if you pay higher dollar etc…
The (cartridge) bearings feel like shit. Even after a couple of hundred kms they still feel like shit. Slow, sluggish, crunchy. Replacing with high quality (Japanese!) cartridge bearings would probably fix this problem. Also the axle is too fucking short. Way too short. It’s impossible to get all the thread of an aftermarket track nut engaged with most dropouts. The reason you need an aftermarket track nut is because the pansey ones that are supplied fall apart! As well as the integrated washer being useless and not turning, gouging the pain, and as well as using a 14mm spanner.
Mine are going on an off-road bike which will get the crap beaten out of it. Good riddance.
No need to stay away from them, but let me put it this way. I think it would be absolutely impossible for the much cheaper shifterbikes hubsets to be any worse than the Miches. And they’re flip flop, dishless, and available in colours other than mangey clear ano. I think. I would love to see some pics/opinions of the shifter hubs actually, although for the price it’s not a real gamble to try them…
Yup, I’ve got a pair. Might post some pics tonight if I can figure out how.
They feel slightly smoother than my velocities. Seem pretty strong. Cog threads on smoothly (always a good sign) as do the lockring and track nuts. Been riding them everyday this past month. Very happy with them. Axle is long enough to fit in my 126mm frame.
