    EG and fun bolt rear hub?

    I'm in the market for a good set of wheels for stinky this year. He deserves better than leftovers from the enduro. I leaning toward chris kings (of course) and was thinking about a fun bolt rear hub.

    Has anyone tried one on a 2010 EG? The rear of these bikes is already pretty stout but it couldn't hurt to make it stiffer'er. The only drawbacks are the fact that you are required to get the stainless hub shell (extra unneeded weight if you run a sram 990 or shimano xt+ cassette) and tougher rear tube changes on the trail.

    Also stuck between brown or PINK

    Changed the axle to heavy duty but didn't need to change to the stainless steel freebody (mine is the older CK ISO). Slap the fun bolts on and never look back. Just carry an 8mm hex key with you... takes maybe 5 seconds more than a QR.

    and those fun bolts are really quality machined stuff.
    just make sure u check the collar/spacer thingie on the rotor side once in a while to make sure its tightened down

    I had a funbolt rear hub on my 06 spec enduro but I wasn't able to tell a huge difference in stiffness. Have you noticed any increase in rigidity?

    Yes. especially when I don't land straight. Some tires I used are really close to the stays. With skewers I notice a number of times it rubs the frame when going hard into corners or say take a small hump jump into a berm. Other than that..straight riding, not really a lot of diff..

    can't afford CK on all bikes..so when it comes to skewers, I stick with the DT Swiss ratchet ones. the cams or whatever its called that secures to the dropout areas are better designed than many imo. Plus the ratch tightening design does work quite well.

    Rock'n the ratchet right now. I debated just lacing up some new rims with fresh spokes but why not splurge on some new ck hubs (it is tax return season)

    Can't help on the hubs, too rich for my blood. Hadleys are workin gwell for me.

    I'm going to cal CK monday and make sure I can get the fun bolts with the regular aluminum drive shell. Also going to call Stans and see if I can get a pair of raw flow rims. I have a plan on a pair of wheels.......

    polished stans flow rims.....pink nips.....silver spokes and.......PINK HUBS!!!

    If the CK hub got the one piece axle you shoud be good to go.
    If I disagree with you, it's because you are wrong.

    From what I've read the only way to get the funbolts is w/ the one peice axle.

    What do you need to run the fun bolts? I already have the SS shell (piece the cassette goes on). How do I know if I have the SS axel? Is that want the bolts screw into? How much would the axel cost? What specifically does the fun bolts do?

    There is no specific SS CK axles. If u change, it just depends on whether it is disc (ISO or non-disc (Classic). Check the option based on your hub accordingly.

    nice stems

    Clamps the bars pretty wide 2" and under $80.

    It's got big steerer bolts and they're on the same side (I hate having to switch sides 1/4 turns).
    *"Harem in waiting"
    How wide is the bar clamp on that Point1?

    Lets open up that wall. Hadleys have a bolt on too.. in bling Ti offering !!!

    Both brands ( and also the Hope) 10mm bolt on with the large amount of threadings into the axle on both ends wont be much different to a one piece TA imo.

    It was down to either CK or Hadleys when I built the wheels-- CK wins, for my riding with a lot of wet roots/obstacles, it boils down to instantaneous engagement when quarter-cranking on tricky bits. Downside...its draggy when the going up is smooth

    Nice cause you can't see through the stem (fingers are connected). And it wraps under the bar.

    Side cut looks um El Guapo-esk, 'specially the polished/polished. Think I got it $50

    Good point. It's dusty around here. Thing rolls/cranks well
