change alienation to 7ka, i would keep hub colour the same, but its your choice, tires are preference, but sounds good

Everyone I know who has run Fly front female hubs has broken the center axle after months of clicking from the bearings.

It is up to you, I have heard of people not having any issues as well. If you grind and aren't the smoothest, I would look into a different front hub.

this is exactly what happened to me! dont buy it. I would go with a matching hub set, like gsports or profiles. Lay down a bit of cash, in the end its worth it. I run the gsport marmoset in front and the gsport ratchet in the back, both laced to fly rims. Gorgeous bomb proof wheels. If i were you id get profile minis laced to gsport rims.

yeah i might stay away from the fly hub than. is the madea front hub just as reliableas the rear? i might get madera front and back and im not sure hat rims to lace them too, i want something strong and light. i was looking at the animal rs rims but apparently they have had problems and the g sport bird cages im not to sure about

both 7kas if you have the money for it. and dont go too light up front cuz if your front end is super light and the back end is regular weight you will be all jacked up

yeah money is no issue i just wanted a light and strong set up, i think my final decision is both madera hubs front and back in graffiti laced to black animal rs rims. unless anyone has heard bad things about the rs rims?
