I did but the Switch hubs get mixed reviews with regards to bearing life and the Tesla hubs don't seem to last very well at all. I'm not a Hope fan boy but I knew that I'd be able to get spares for years to come. I also like Maic rims; I know they're not seen my many as sexy as Stans rims but I've never had any issues with them in a very long time of riding. These rims are basically a D521 in black...strong and reliable.
It's a good little bike that I enjoy riding. I'm getting faster on it...I was following some lads on big bikes down the local DH runs the other week and I wasn't far behind.
How are you getting on with yours?
This is what I was wondering too, seems like a reasonable rationale specially if spending decent money, Hubs made in UK you can get parts for and good old reliable rims. The hubs come with adapter to run any front axle yeah? That's the way I understand it.
Good stuff, quite nimble your Bfe and they are so solid. I was riding a friends Intense, and as lovely as that was I was still happy to pile down the same chute on the Bfe It's quite sure footed pointed down.
Mines going well thanks, it's still too heavy hence the wheel thing, an upgrade for next year, might steal your jazzy grips too. I'm well overdue a thread update, watch that space!!
