    The Hive Chub MTB wheelset

    Has anyone seen them or ridden them? They were highlighted in the back of the latest MBA Magazine but I couldn't find much about them online. This is all I could find:

    eThirteen, Hive Show New Wheels, Chainguides, Flat Pedals - Bike Rumor

    I'm intrigued by the tall flange heights and scandium rims. Total weight looks to be around the 1760gr weight with quite a bit of it focused around the hub area. The Scandium rims should be in the 400gr range(based on the 26" weight) and have an IRD of 21mm. Also, the rear hub is 6 pawl with dual teetth per pawl so engagement should be quite fast

    Anyone know anything else?

    I have a 29er set on order. E13 says they'll be shipping end of this month (I hope).

    Nice!

    Price?

    Have 60 poe rear hub if it engages every 6 degrees.

    Look real nice. Hopefully they come in close to their claimed weight.

    MSRP was $1200 according to MBA. I'm sure street price will be quite a bit less

    I do like that e13 is expanding everything and think they make a nice product. If I had to do it over again I would have not gotten a Pauls (LOVE IT) and would have purchased a chub rear also would have not gotten a hope front and a 20mm chub front.

    Oh well.

    I'm interested in these hubs too. The only thing I have to add...When doing a Google image search for "Chub Hub", be prepared for chub porn.
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    I've got the Chub hubs and I'm very happy with them. I'm running them with a White Industries freewheel which I happen to think is a very nice combo. Here is a pic:

    You were complimenting the hub too I aSSume? I think the big flange is good for the taller hoops. Would love to build up a set for my SS but just not in the budget.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    Yeah I was complimenting the hubs. They have been solid but I'm also a fan of the White Industries freewheel and Stan's rims. I think I'm closing in on around 2000 miles on my wheels and they still roll and ride great (feel stiff and efficient).

    I'm curious how these would compare to a set of carbon wheels. Hive is claiming 30% stiffer than the competition and at MSRP $1200 instead of $2000 range for carbons, I'm wondering how much of a difference there really is? I guess Hive hubs laced to carbon rims would be the ultimate
