    yeah, they've been around for a bit, always supporting the bmx crossover with the rim brakes and 110mm hubs...

    oh really? hmm, I thought they stuck by the hubs... I haven't been by to check out their new stuff lately though.
    but, when you think about it, with a 26" wheel on the back, a 110mm spaced hub won't build the strongest wheel. I can see it on the front, but the back takes much more abuse. 110 works well in my opinion on 24" though. maybe this was one reason they switched, since I don't see disc on that picture....

    look on the unrealcyclesdotcom bike gallery, there are some pics on there I believe...

    That thing looks like a chopper. Way slack.

    If you think about the actually flange width of a 135mm 9-speed disc hub compared to a 110mm SS non-disc, I bet the 110 is actaully wider. However, a 135mm SS non-disc hub is probably wider but no one really has problems w/ 9-speed disc so I think 110mm is fine for 26s.
