First, don't get the nitrous rim. Second, look up ''bmx spoke length calculator.

I wouldn't get the ring rim. You can get a Sun Rhynolite XL for $20 more. Also if you're planning on using that hub as a FC I heard that they suck. They use a plastic clutch disc which gets destroyed easily. And usually if you order them from the same place they will lace the wheel for free. Just get it from Albes and theyll lace it for you.

Whoa whoa whoa HardBMX_Tim. Dont shoot down a product you havent seen in person. Get yourself that coaster, i talked to Topsey about it and his bud is on it apparently and it is great, and Topsey is a real reliable guy. Go ahead and buy that hub! Also, there is much better rims. Get an Odyssey Quadrant. I run it and it is only 40 bucks for a hell of a rim. Im pretty hard on wheels and this thing holds up amazingly! haha

I don't mean to shoot it down. But my understanding is the prototypes were amazing with an alloy clutch in them. Then come production time they put non test rode plastic clutches in them, which in reality would be the same as using a plastic ratchet ring in a cassette hub. So they just get torn up and dont last. The design is good. If it included an alloy clutch (like the kinks will probably have) then it would work great.

someone could make a decent amount if they released an alloy clutch plate

Kink is coming out with them to convert the Incite cassette to FC. Wonder if it will work in the ezra. If you CNC it wouldnt be hard to make though

Well remember, Derlin is a strong plastic and they actually used that in the production model. You can beat the balls out of Derlin and it wont break. It isnt the ratchet ring either. haha It doesnt go thru much stress to start with and it being Derlin (which is quite slippery when even mildy moistened with any lube and is pretty good by itself) it only brings the pawls up for the ratchet ring to catch. The only problem ever with it is (like any cassette) is from time to time itll slip past the ring. That design seems to work well.
