Best rear hub for heavy street

It's time for a new hub... Again. I Appearantly have really bad luck with rear hubs. Every single one I've gotten (wtp stock, primo remix, alienation coaster, and a fit) slips non stop on me when grinding. I have an anti roll pin in my peg so it's definately my hubs. What hubs are good for street, grinding, drops and all that. Freecoaster or cassette, either is fine to name. Thanks

its not the hub, you cant tighten an axle nut correctly

if they keep slipping youre probably losing the washers that come on your hub

Do you even tighten your bolts dog? If not then for sure don't get a coaster you wont be able to handle the maintenance. cone nut wrenches

Well considering that you can't tighten a wheel, I would venture to say that your statement is false, plus you've made a thread asking the same thing before and got dumped on.

An anti roll pin doesnt solve the problem, infact im pretty sure we went over this once and youre better off with a spacer inside your peg if you do have an antiroll pin. Anyway, bsd pro hub is probably one of the strongest hubs out there (on paper, its too new to have reviews) and the ratchet is obviously strong as shit but the engagement is not too good due to the not so great driver

Thank you. I made this threa cuz literally nothing worked to fix it. Literally 1 grind and it slips

It's not the driver that's to blame it's the ratchet ring, it has quite wide spacing due to the space needed for RHD/LHD compatibility.

This. I've had joytechs, a mix, and 2 alienation coasters. All of which you mentioned with no issues. You're either not tightening enough or overtightening and strippind something

A stripped axle is obvious. So let's rule that out. Check if the nuts are stripped, then if you have enough space on your axle to run pegs(this applies only if your axle is cut down. Are you running plastic pegs or sleeves? 1 or 2 pegs on the rear wheel?

if they have some sort of metal contact. Ever rode a shadow little one with a slicker sleeve? them fuckers move bad. Not like pedaling down the street but on an icepick or fast feeble or a case, they shift really bad

How does it make it the strongest hub if it has only been out for a bit ? Just cause it has a true female axle doesn't automatically the "strongest hub "
And do you even ride any of the hubs you just talked about ?
Do you even own a bsd hub or ratchet ?

he said on PAPER, that means theoretically speaking based on specs, not speaking from experience
also the ratchet has been time tested to prove its strength
actually read posts before you start talking
