    Yep.

    Remember that's msrp. I'm sure you'll be able to pick them up a little cheaper than that. Damn good hubs. It's a good alternative to Kings. Hadley has a nice looking ss cassette hub also. It will be along the same price line. It's nice to have a few high end choices. It takes the pressure off King.

    Ha! Now, maybe the King wait won't be such a royal pain in the arse!

    I'd love to see a fully built wheel!

    Here's mine! The cassette sound is also much quieter than the buzz saw of the King - not that that is bad, just not as stealthy. I'll build them this weekend - DT Competition 2.0/1.8 spokes, alloy nipples, WTB Laser Disc XC rims. Because fo the center-lock disc, I'll be installing a set of new XT rotors with XTR calipers and XT levers. Fun filled weekend!

    Why not go with the XTR rotors? Post some pics of the new build (wheels and bike)!

    XT and XTR are basically the same. There have also been some issues with howling XTR rotors - especially on XTR wheels. And I already have XT rotors, well, actually, I have both, so I might experiment. Pics when ready!

    far out man

    Hey sweet hubs. Actually I've kind of been waiting for these to come to market. I love the Kings, but the big fishing reel buzz isn't for me. A few questions though:

    1. How much were those puppies?
    2. How does their weight compare to the Kings?
    3. Can a standard IS Disc be mounted to them? (doesn't look like it)
    4. May be too early to tell, but are they tough and durable?
    5. What is the warranty?

    Thanks mon....

    This is my rear wheel with the DT's:



    The rear hub is 264 grams, only had one ride on mine, so don't know much about the durability yet..

    IS Disc won't fit to the CenterLock standard
