    197mm J&L Hub

    I ordered a 197mm rear hub from an ebay seller named pingthyy2010. The quality seemed pretty good, the weigh at 353 grams was reasonable, and the price was great. (I have no idea how well they will hold up in the long-run, but for a bike that I don't anticipate taking into the wilderness, they should be fine.) I thought I'd pass along the information in case anyone was interested.

    Not trying to be a downer. More hoping to be an "ounce of prevention is a pound of cure" sort here.

    I have one of these. It's on my skinny wheels with studded tyres. My primary use hub is a DT. For the expected use, it may suffice. Sounds nice enough.
