I think there is an elastomer between bearing and flanges

We need a Room 101.

You know Browning Transmission.
Scott unicrown fork.
Trek elastomer tennis ball sus frame.
Those halarious spring sus bar ends.
Ummm the twist to stop hand grips.
Flex stem? (Ouch sound of toes being squished)

This would be a number one choice for the front hub.


A room 101 and you can only nominate one item AND there should be a word limit.

Controversial, but... toeclips. The Devil's own invention for mountain bikers at least. Want to get your feet out in a hurry as you're about to stack...no chance.

Once you've picked the grit from out of your knees and are back on the saddle again, can you get your feet back into the damn things on an uphill slope...no chance.

Devil's own I tell you. Straight to Room 101
