the snap on hub guards are sick. definitely sounds like its gonna be a good one
I'd still get an éclat blind over it.. They're bin working on the blind for what like 8 years now.. That's including what wtp did with it
Saw this earlier, neat for sure & also cool how they include guards with EACH hub they make now, but (unpopular opinion time), I think the guards are dumb. if someone doesn't use the guard, the area where it snaps onto the lock nut will look weird and also doesn't seem like it would be adequate surface area to sit alone against the dropout. just what it looks like though, could be wrong. I would much rather chromoly guards myself so I wouldn't use the guards it comes with anyway
I like the "complete wheel" setup and the included guards. Only thing I'm not too stoked on is the non-adjustable slack. Although that's not really a problem if it comes with a pretty decent amount of slack.
Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.
I want one. If the hubguards do their job and last for a while then I don't care. I really dig the whole idea of keeping it simple. They got it spot on with the no slack adjustment. I figure people who ride it will just get used to it without fretting about adjusting it all the time. I could care less about adjustment , it should be dope just riding one , yunno?
And the snap on guards was a great idea. As mentioned , if they protect the hub that it should be fine.
