Hi so I know it is a older hub but I am trying to keep my build parts from around 2010-2014 and was wondering what your guys experiences have been with this hub and if you think it is a good hub mostly looking for thoughts- reviews on the hub though. Thank in advance for replies,
Chris

Not sure why you would want to focus on a time of transition when it was a mix of bad and worse..

Step into today bro.. They got most everything figured out on a level that's just badass compared that period's standards...

I actually plan to build something out of an old MTB frame I have laying around and toss a motor on it.

I had them, no issues but I didn't grind them and the front is a 3/8" male axle. Feel like it's kinda hard to fuck up a traditional cassette hub design.

Were they nice? Just looking at the rear cassette but want to here reviews on them since I can't find much about them.
Also why would I build a bmx out of 2011-2014 parts? I would because I like the geo of a lot of those parts and because it just fun and I want to have my build look like it was from that time since my frame is a stolen cherry from 2011.

I have the front Alpha hub off my friend’s old DK complete, from I believe 2013. Axle is very long, so I cut it, but works great for me. That said, I don’t do any grinds, so I can’t attest to that sort of durability.
