Heyyy,

I'm planning on buying me a new rear hub. I was eyeing used ones, but i found out about the Eighties Roadie Rear Cassette hub. Anyone has any experience with theese? The other option I have is a Salt EX, or Salt Trapez, that i can buy used, wich one do i gt for?
Also if anyone can give me info if it's sealed bearing, or nah, also does the driver come with a sealed bearing, that would be awesome.

Sealed bearings = good hub

They’re probably all pretty much the same thing internally

Looks like a Joytech clone to me-so it will be comparable to a lot of stuff on the market.

Is fully sealed, comparable to many of the popular ones out there. Plus it comes with a primo guard.
Also check the Eighties Hell cassette. Comes with both primo guards.
All the eighties products I've had in my shop have been excellent quality.
