    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.

    That looks really good. What size, can you get a weight?

    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.
