    Quando 20mm T/A hub

    the wheel set i'm gonna get has one on it and i keep reading reviews saying that the bearings are junk, but i think they're all talking about the loose ball hubs, especially the rear

    well how about the T/A hubs? if they are junk bearings then i have no problem replacing the bearings with good ones.

    Anybody have any experiance with them? Also, i couldn't find a website?

    Yea, ignore those reviews, they are for the loose ball hubs. While the bearings probably arent the best, they are still sealed cartridge bearings. They'll last a good while and like you said, they can be replaced with higher quality bearings.

    No worries.

    I don't have too many miles on mine yet, but they are fine... just low on bling factor. I was worried about quality, but there really isn't much to a front hub to go wrong... especially 20mm. For the price, they are definitely OK.
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    Are you just throwing that out there, or do you know of a 20mm quando that has failed?
