    the "floss factor" on that sucka. fools in bentleys parked in front of the Regent Beverly Wilshire will see you rollin' on that and think, daayum, he must be a playa.

    WTF are you going to put it on? fixXxin' up the new dean, or what?

    sound design, maybe not for track?

    what the website says about reducing torsional windup is a good thing. but you've got to weight that advantage against the increased wind resistance such a fat hub would have in a 40 mph sprint. Going that fast, it would be significant I would think. Probably find more of a market among yuppie bike messenger poseurs on their stupid brakeless track bikes that never visit the banking.

    what really sucks...

    is when I'm in said 40mph sprint down the blvd. on my poseur fixie bike, trying to beat that Excursion-load of HBFK's into Starbucks for my venti sugar free vanilla soy latte, and the wind resistance on my freakin rear hub is holding me back. Argh! But it's all good, cuz the whole time I've got some old skool NWA bumpin' on the iPod (tucked into my Timbuk 2 messenger bag, natch)...na sayin'?

    hey mr dope man you think your slick
    you sold crack to my sister and now shes sick
    but if she happens to die becuzz of yo drug
    i'm puttin in yo quto a 38 slug


    yeah I'm hardcore.....deal with it.
    HW

    poseur fixie - check
    timbuk2 bag - check
    iPod - check (My sense of self preservation won't let me use it on the bike though.)
    frufru yuppie drink - check

    40mph sprint - uhhh, not quite. 40mph on a 42x16 gear = waaay faster than I can spin.

    Ack. I'm a walking (or rolling) cliche.

    HBFKs?
