    Hollywood corrupted me

    So after i had recently gotten over my obession of upgrading my fsr to the teeth i fly to cali to ride with hollywood and crew and am immediately interested in his flaming pink rigid ride. a two minute climb up a reasonably steep hill instantly sold me with its super nimble response and surprisingly smooth ride and most importantly - simplicity.

    Who wants to trade their SS for my loaded '03 stumpy fsr????

    Anyone know how well american classic disc hubs convert to ss? What about XTR 952 cranks?? I'm thinking i can just get a frame and use most of the stuff from my current ride to make things easier.

    thanks to hollywood for the cali experience and for effortlessly showing me what i should really be riding!

    they work great! i've been using them for a while on mine, with no problems. if you're going to keep them disc, and are using a frame with an ebb, then it's even easier, as you can keep them regular QR, and have no wheel slippage issues. however.....since they are an aluminum freehub body, you'll want to use a wide based cog, like a king or a boone ti, or the spicer cycles granny cog adapter. one solution i made was to take a bmx cog, and jb weld a smaller old cassette cog onto each sie in line with the splines. voila! easy, cheap wide cog that won't dig into the alu freehub body!

    wow. nice run on there, eh?

    you know you want it.

    you find yourself staring at the Boone titanium cog....repeating to yourself...."must sell geared bikes....derailleurs bad.....pain good."

    Look deeply into the diamond-encrusted headbadge....everything you need to know is right there inside....

    what the hell am I talking about? Glad ya liked the girlie bike! Forgot to tell you about the hikers that were laughing at you when you rode by. Good times!


    and am immediately interested in his flaming pink rigid ride.

    easy there, Sparky.

    I would only use the Am Classic hubs on an EBB machine...I'm having troubles with wheel slippage with them on my Karate Monkey and that's with a Surly Tuggnut tensioner and a bolt on skewer. I ended up having to get a new wheel made which sucks
