    Sarma hubs?

    Anybody know anything about Sarma hubs? looks like they use i9's 6 offset pawl layout for 120 poe. i'm looking for an affordable 170 hub with good engagement, and for $180 this not only fits the bill, but seems way too good to be true.
    link is here: Sarma 135/150/170/190 Hubs | Sarma USA
    why haven't i heard of these before?

    I would like more info as well.

    Has anyone purchased from their website? Any luck?

    I can pay via PayPal @ $180 for the rear, but not sure if that includes the shipping.

    Asked about it but no reply so far...

    Chris.

    Have the hubs, but waiting on a frame--once I have them up and running I will report back.

    I've got Sarma wheelset (rear hub 190 mm) 3 month ago, no issues.
    There are 4 bearings in rear hub:
    2х 6903 LLB Enduro bearing in hub shell
    2х MR17287 LLB Enduro bearing in freehub body
    I think that 170mm hub has same bearings.
    QR|Axle conversion kit included.

    You need two 5mm hex wrenches and one 14mm hex wrench (or driver socket).
    1. use 5mm hex wrenches on both QR end caps, rotate counterclockwise (right-hand thread), and one of them will screw out with funny "crack" sound :-)
    2. use 5mm hex wrench and 14 mm hex driver socket to unscrew another end cap.

    I dont know why Sarma dont put some kind of instructions or manuals with hubs/wheelsets

    Thank you--yes, instructions would have been nice--definitely provides a secure system for the end caps.
