Next order will be 2.2 hawks, front and rear, spokes/nips, and hubs. Still torn on what to get for hubs. Save some cash and go with a cult hubset or spend more on an antigram or g-sport set. And btw, when does the new g-sport cassette come out?

Simian rear won't be until the second half of 2015.

My take on hubs is:

Madera: For being a really good value
Anti-grams: For being really strong, if you don't want to wait for the Simian rear
Tree: If you don't give a fuck about money

Hubs I just can't recommend:
Profile Minis: Mechanically identicle to Madera, but more expensive. If you want neon pink party splatter galaxy print logo wrapped, you're stuck with these.
Any other taiwan catalog hubset: If you can't figure out what the difference between hub A and hub B is, you're paying for a sticker. Just go find some generic, sealed hubs off a complete bike. They are mostly the same thing.

I'd save dude, buy the tree hubs. That'd be awesome. It'd be the LAST hubs you'll ever need. Or some Madera hubs, they're awesome too, i'd get them because they're like better profiles, good engagement and i think they dont come with that stupid kind of axle most profiles have.

I can wait for the simian. I just want a reliable hub with an Odyssey/G-Sport warranty.

You can get them with whatever axle setup you want. I'm on steel female rear, aluminum female front and buttonhead bolts.

I had a RHD rear for awhile that never skipped, but my current LHD hub skipped a ton, even with new springs/pawls. I put a second set of springs in, and it stopped skipping, but it sounds like shit.

I would get the Trees if I had to do it again. I had those on my 22.

That's good to know, i just never felt compelled to buy any just because they're real expensive and i have no use for them. haha
