Im looking for some rear hubs that run on needle bearings instead of sealed ball bearings. I know the Primo cassettes do, but I want another hub. Are there any more?

Hub Shell Bearings are ALL Needles & I'm 99.9% Sure the Driver Bearings are Needle Too! Gimme 5mins!

EDIT: What an absolute PITA!! No Pictures of the Fecking Driver!! However, You can see why it is Nicknamed by a few people the "Whiskey Barrel" & You can see the Needles for the Hub Shell!

That Helix is beefy like daaaang. Still needs a better clutch system. I have one i designed in my head thatd work better than that spring ball thing, but still use the same concept. And have the same engagement type.
