    I have the On-One planetX single speed casette disc hub. It is much cheaper and heavier than the Chris King. It has held up well for me over the past year, I have npot touched the bearings at all, just let the mud dry and brushed it off occasionaly. Email Brant for more info on prices etc.

    I did the design, Joytech made it. Novatech is Joytechs public-facing brand. They sell our hub as the Novatech too.

    Little confused by that, so does novatech hub=on one hub?

    And how is the US importer/distributor for On One?

    Woodman=Novatec=PlanetX/On-One.. Sad but true.

    ANd don't forget the PlanetX is the original..

    Yeah, DT 240S SS is available now, ordered one last week, so I can tell you more about that one soon.

    Check the Bits 'n Pieces on www.singlespeed.nl for an overview on singlspeed hubs

    [SIZE=3]Nukeproof make a SS specific hub with a carbon center piece. You might want to ask a few people who ride nukes for their opinion on longevity.[/SIZE]

    I emailed Joy-Tech and they simply mentioned safety concerns in broken english. I see they make other hubs and wondered if the their QR axles would work in your hub.
