It's used to clean the hub basically everytime you pedal and the wheels spins and cleans the hub from dirt what's your view on this? i think it's creative.

It looks super gay and the only thing it does is keep the hub shell shiny , but then you have a shoelace in the way.

i dont use them, kind of distracts me while riding, but i see why posers use them, to make their shit look nice
there is this guy i ride with sometimes, with a really shitty looking, creaky and rusty bike
a lot of people tell him it looks like shit, and then he goes and hucks a 180 t-bog to full cab, or a 360 tabletop and then they shut up cause they cant do anything

a friend suggested i do this but i could never get the shoelace around the hub and thought it looked stupid and distracting it only cleans the middle part of the hub anyway the sides where the spokes ends are at usually are the dirtiest especially around the driver

it seems stupid, because the rest of the bike still collects dirt and dust etc in the same way so you litterally just have clean hubs :L I used to work at a bike wash though, so if i need a clean bike, thats where I go, not to my old pair of trainers...

My friend did this but he used superglue and it dissolved the shoelace and caught on fire so he blew it out and it was done. Personally, I saw his hub and it left scum and builtup stuff that was worse than before. Plus, the shoelace looks weird so I don't do this crap. Just like said above, clean it with some paper towels or something. I personally use paper towels and q-tips.

I just have a free mars bar wrapper between my spokes for those lonely days.
on the note about using the laces from your trainers I say no. maybe if you are a park rat that always gets the lightest parts and won't buy something if it doesn't match then it might be for you but i hate the look.

I have a shoelace on my back hub just because not because it makes it clean and i have an air freshener hanging from my upper cable so every day when I walk in my shed to get my bike it smells like pine in there haha.
