urrgghh, that's horrible. Every time you click the mouse a cocroach appears and when you click on them again they disappear.

i wonder if they'll be cool components or not. I imagine they'll be freeride-tough generic looking components a la Sun-Ringle. But maybe I'll be proved wrong?

Watch out for exploding freehub mechanism on the carbon units. I've been witness to two separate instances of catastrophic failure. :shock: First the original and then on the replacement warranty hub.

The flange on my skinny carbon version cracked and seperated.
I went looking for a replacment and found another chap that claimed to have had it happen to him twice.
This is the skinny carbon version and happened on the rear hub.
Still have the front one working no problem.
