I spoiled my rear hub yester day . The cones were so tight on my Shimano M525 that caused the cups ‘ cones and the pellets .Although it had lived its life through out a year and a half of freeriding and downhilling But still usable so maybe im gona sell it. As im tired of cone hubs.
I got an old Novatec rear hub. ( I use a 20mm TH on my front ) Not so old its for 2004 .
First I thought to buy a 12 mm axel rear hub than shave a millimeter from each side and make it 10mm on the dropout section for fitting in my Stinky rear dropouts but then I thought I should keep with the standards .
So I got a Novatec ball bearing rear hub. I couldn’t find its web site on the net . So I want to ask you if you know anything about this brand ?
Then to put on some pro’s ant no’s on Cone /pellet hubs and ball bearing QR hubs.
Let me start myself
Pros of ballbearing
1 : No need for maintenance
2 : No need for adjustments
3 : Lower rolling resistance
4 : The spindle deals way much better with impacts comparing to the QR spindle.
Go on for more…..Pre ThanX.
