    It works pretty well...well, the one I used did. Dunno how much it cost, didn't ask, but it was pretty cheapie looking...

    That's a sexy hub...one question though...how are you gonna change gears? Manually moving it over?

    It looks like the Mango color but it's actually Gold ,freaky lighting in my cellar. as far as the spindoctor stand, I built that wheel today and trued it and it's dead spot on...spoke tension is equal and it came out great!:bigthumb: for a $35.00 stand.I only build maybe two or three wheels a year as I taco them so I didnt see the need to spend the cake on a park... but maybe now I'll do more .before I was just trueing them on the frame...A pain in the balls! so this is a step up for me!..so far so good. I only run single speed... and no shifting needed when you only run single speed

    they are bomb for the money. you can snag that or the minoura cheapies on sale for under 50 bucks sometimes. they work. so do zipties on your frame... omg worlds mechanic secrets!!! giddy!!!

    nice wheel mang. that gold king is fancy stuff.

    Are you sure? I calculated it and i got a max weight saving of 86 grams( asumming 32 holes + pretty thick rim walls of 2mm and T6 alu)

    if the Rim top walls are thinner (which they probably are) its even less

    Nice golden nipples!





    My drilled DX32 weighs 680g. (34 big holes, no eyelets)
    An undrilled one with eyelets weighs 730g.

    so basicaly drilling isnt going to make that much of a noticable difference...If I was going to go snort a big fat bank of coke and grab my cordless and drill out every non crucial part of my bike.... save a pound maybe? I'll just take a big dump before I ride and save my drill bits!:bigthumb:
