    I gotta disagree, I have the steel free hub and sometimes my cassette gets stuck on because the steel has worn, I can't imagine what it what be like if it was aluminum.
    And I've seen too many standard axels break, heavy duty axel w/ fun bolts is the only way to go.
    Not to put down your hub sebLG, I know you're high right now just looking at that, and it's worth every penny you spent. But when it's time to send it in, spend a little extra dough and have it upgraded.

    Regular axles are fine (in fact I would never buy an HD axle after my first one).

    So are alum drive shells.


    Gold is fine too.

    I'm guessing you mean airbomb.com, which is a high discount canadian bike parts warehouse. I've heard good and bad from them. I've heard of people receiving great service and parts on time, and I've heard the exact opposite. I would say I've probably heard more bad than good, but if its discount you're going for, some times you just take the bad with the good. I hope you see it soon though :).

    MMM yummy,

    i like both of those things but i dont like what i hear about the koxx rim untrueing easily so i got a DX32, anyone know whats the best drilling size for one becuase i want to drill it and does any one have a picture a drilled yellow DX32 becuase mine is yelllow and i am wondering what it is going to look like, and if you dont like drilling rims dont waste a post telling me not to!

    I went ahead and stuck 1" holes in my DX32, but it is definitely the largest you could go without hitting into the structure of the rim near the sidewalls. I had about a hairs width of space to deal with to not hit that but I used a drill press so it was pretty easy really. If you have a hand drill, try 7/8" holes.

    I must be unlucky then, seems like nobody else breaks those axels.
    Theo broke his and mine broke like two months later, so i thought it was a given.....oh well.
    Andy, what was wrong with your HD axel?
