The Good: The looks are the only positive thing I can highlight.
The Bad: Everything else. I bought the male axle version and one of the bearings blew out right after I put it on my bike and did a 180 on flat. The axle canal of the driver eroded and the drive-side hardware managed to grind the driver's washer down to a nub,causing the driver to severely shift back and forth. I also bought the Colony hub guard and the grub screw on the guard is designed to screw down on top of the axle's threads,meaning that if the guard shifts even a little, it will destroy the axle's threads.(which is what happened.) Eventually it got to the point where tightening my wheel onto the frame would shove the hub guard down the axle ,which stripped the guard's threads entirely,making it completely useless and I had to force-thread the non-drive side cone(which is replaced by the guard) onto the axle which had been ruined. The axle itself is a weak material and bent very easily,eventually snapping on a mishap which was nowhere near bad enough for it to make sense. The alloy axle nuts are soft and easily cross-threaded.
Basically I can't (for the life of me) figure out why Colony thinks so highly of themselves to charge such outrageous prices for products that aren't even domestic,much less quality inspired. Bottom line- buy a Profile and call it a decade,because it will probably last that long.
