    Man that's exactly what I have.

    Problems I have :

    - Chainring rubs hard against the top guide when the guide is directly mount to the frame. Cranks clear both top and bottom guides.

    - With the spacers installed, chainline is great but the RS7's (164mm) rub both the top guide and jockey wheel.

    Just had a thought, maybe the BB(113mm) is too long?

    Scratch that thought, shorter BB will only make the arms rub again.

    can someone explain the 10 speed conversion cassette? does it require respacing of the 9 speed/capreo portion?

    does the hub take end caps (allowing 150 12mm to be made 150 qr)?

    many thanks.

    The Conversion cogs- are the lower 4 cogs needed to fit on to a 9t hub. They convert the following 10 speed cassettes:

    Sram 10 speed 11t-36t and 12t-36t.
    Models-
    PG-1070
    PG-1050
    PG-1030

    Shimano 10 speed cassettes- both 11t-36t and 11t-34t
    Models:
    XTR M980
    XT M771
    SLX- HG81

    Just replace the lower 4 cogs with the conversion cogs to mount to a 9t hub-

    The 150 is not convertible to a QR- (not sure I know of a bike that is a 150 qr.)
    QR 135 is available.

    Also: We now have Shimano Capreo cassettes tools available for the lock ring.

    The 135 QR can be bought now? Your website doesn't list it as available. Also, what is the weight of the 135qr, or 135x12 version? Number of engagement points?

    Is is 32 spoke holes, right?

    The new Sram 1x11 with 10t as heaviest gear doesn't seem logical to me, i wonder if they will use the capreo style freehubs. (the limited edition specialized demo will have DT240 hubs with capreo freehub, seems market is accepting the low-teeth cogs)

    Big, I run the RS-7....118 BB length....spacers behind the mount. I never got the 28t. Someone else tried the HB on the RS-7's and the ring was spaced out further then a 3rd ring on a triple, so I gave up and settled on the 30t. I wanted to the Sram cranks with the MRP ring but the only 165mm cranks that Sram makes are mega $$$$. No complaints so far.

    I just had a 142 show up on Monday. I will try to post pic later. Very sweet hub though I can not wait to put one on my new One.

    The 150 I have on my DH bike rocks!

    Btw hubs are lighter now due to a few upgrades.

    EDIT:
    I wish this hub is mine I got one for a good friend that is building a new wheel. My hub will be coming in a few weeks

    Thanks for the super fast shipping Sean! You rock brother.

    size is 142x12, for the weight you'll have to wait. I don''t have a scale at home but I can weigh the wheel once it is built up.

    Got the wheel last night. Built up with DT swiss double butted and a WTB i23, weight came out to 1020 grams.

    And sorry to be a tease but I also have the 10 speed conversion kit mounted up. Canfield Bros have truly thought this through. They put in some nice attention to detail and it bolted up super easy. I used six cogs from a PG-1050 cassette (lighter than the 1070 for some reason) and then the 4 cogs from the conversion kit. My gear range is 9-36. This is my first 1x setup so I wimped out with a 28t MRP bling ring. I am sure I will grow out of it, but we have some tough climbs and I like to take my time getting to the top.

    I have some pictures but... they are at home. I will try and get them up tonight.

    That's a respectable weight for finish rear wheel. At a rough guess. I'd say the hub is around 330g +- 20/30grams.

    I'm going for a 28t Bling Ring as well, I'd do anything to keep a FD out of the equation. Hate them.

    Around 340 g +/- 10 grams... very respectable for this type of hub.

    Other weight savings: No front D, front shifter and cable. Shorter chain as well in most apps. This set up gives you better clearance as well as we all know.

    I absolutely LOVE this set up on my 2012 Jedi (in 150mm) I can not wait to put a 142mm on my 2012 One!

    Thanks Chris and Lance again for being the first to bring this to market (production hubs) for us. Keep up the good work!

    I have been able to put some miles on the set up and I am really digging it. The hub has great engagement for the technical riding we have around here. And I never think of the cassette, which means it is doing it's job! When I work up some more bike funds I am planning on buying the same set up again as a back up wheel. Maybe by then Canfield will have stock wheels built up with this hub and their new rims. (hint hint )

    Nice! I just got my 28t bling yesterday, mounted and ridden today, I should have the Micro within a week or so. Pics to come.

    How's the Zee working out? Good to see a short cage 10 speed from Shimano.

    Oh, and nice bike....

    The Zee is a solid derailleur at an awesome pricepoint. I don't anticipate trashing this one, but I will replace it with the same when it is time.

    It's arrived!

    This is what was waiting at the doorstep when I arrived home this afternoon. At 340g's I'm pretty impressed with the weight. In comparison the Hope Evo that had was going to be a place holder weighed 310 grams and a Hadley has a claimed weight of 360 grams.

    The 80 gram conversion cluster is a smooth piece of machinery. It adapts securely with its adopted SLX family. For out of the box impressions I'm again impressed.

    It'll all be laced to a Mavic EN521 via DT double butted spokes tomorrow. It's been a long time waiting. The hub finally complement's the XO DH's sporting a 28t Bling ring and the Microguide. I'm over the moon!

    Thanks Calhoun and bigcrs for showing us some pics... keep the ride reports coming! The 28/11-36 would be my choice so I'm interested to see how it goes. Fortunately/unfortunately I just got a proprietary wheelset I like (crossmax sx) so I don't think this will happen for me for a year or two unless mavic makes some kind of conversion.

    I'm kind of surprised more companies aren't making compatible pieces as this really seems like a step forward but I guess it's still pretty fringe at this point? Hopefully we see more along these lines at euro and interbike.

    I got to check this setup out first-hand last weekend - Canfield has a very nice product with this one. Talk about anticipating market trends and setting the way - I could definitely see running this setup over the 35t 1x9 setup I have now.

    Are the XT's a current model and what ring manufacture (other than thief'n Homebrewed) provides a 28t for Shimano?

    And you'd want to be certain that a Shimano setup jives with MRPs Microguide.

    Before you send any money to Homebrewed checkout the single speed forum. It'll shed a little light on HBC.

    Agreed. Took me 4 months to get my 28 tooth from them. Great price but I wish they charged a little more to hire people. I would pay more if I did not have to wait months to get one.

    Does the new model XT cranks have a removable spider? and if so, what kind of chainring would fit it, say, in a 28-32t to play along with the MRP micro guide?

    I placed an $65 order around late March, still waiting. No actually, I've given up, it makes my blood boil when I think about it.

    As is seems, yes, i still did not put my hands on the new xt crank but if you look closely at its pictures, seems all cranks slx and up excluding saing and zee have removable spiders

    Check out their facebook page for more info, sounds like he's been dealing with some major stress related health issues to go along with some manufacturing problems. Apparently still under docs orders to not being working on the orders but is anyways to get them out. He said everything from August and earlier will be going out in the next week or so. Looking forward to the ring and bash I ordered back in the spring, I figured they were never coming at this point. Despite the delays and lack of contact I'm hoping for the best for the guy, sounds like a one man operation that got overwhelmed and then blew up in his face. Hopefully he bumps prices and reduces volume to come through it all, he made some mention of trying to streamline operations, outsourcing anodizing, and trying to make it work. Despite the delays and no contact it's tough to hate on a guy that was trying to make some cool, innovative products. Despite the headaches this time, I may even order again if he sorts it out.

    I love my 28T Bling Ring but decided to pick up a 30T and found that MRP is backordered again till the end of Feb. I found a new option with North Shore Billet. They have 27T-36T in even and odd numbers except for 35T in stock. Just thought I'd let you guys know there's another option out there. I'll let you know how the quality is and how it compares to the MRP once I get it.

    Interested to see what the chainline is like with those NSB rings, they list them as 48mm - which is fairly narrow. I like the graphics.

    I've been keeping an eye on NSB for sometime, ever since they announced that they were going to do a spiderless ring. Pretty nice look'n, nice range to choose from.

    Wonder why they recommend the Lopes for a guide, especially for anything under 32t? Maybe it has something to with spacing.... The one they have pictured is a 29t w/Lopes guide.
