    They look cheap. The rear, except for the nutted axle, looks just like the nashbar one

    I used the Nashbar version of this Bryant (on one) design and it held up fairly well. It uses 4 cartridge bearings and the OEM bearings are pretty cheap (they lasted two seasons). If one bearing goes, you're pretty much obligated to replace then all. I replaced the bearings with a much better version, but sold the wheels before I had a chance to try them out. Weight wise the are a boat anchor, but they are bullet proof. The guys at misfit psycles are great to work with and I recommend them highly.
    Just one more rep and I get the toaster!

    I've run a Nashbar SS cassette hub on my dirt jumper without issue for over 13 months.

    I believe the Misfit hubs are made by Formula.
    All problems in mountain biking can be solved by going faster, except the ones that are caused by going too fast.

    Let's resurrect this topic as I am curious about how well these hubs hold up as well.

    Can anyone verify if Formula makes these?

    They are silent, heavy, and the engagement is meh (only other hub I've run is american classic, and those were way faster spinning with better engagement). The best part about the Misfit hub is they arent damn thread on freewheels.

    I'm running Misfit hubs front and rear. They are inexpensive but they are heavy. Engagement is probably still better than the other stuff I've tried (LX, XT, Formula), but they're not I9's, CK, Hope's or.... I put about 1300 miles on them last year riding in wet and muddy Western North Carolina and they still spin smooth and have been maintenance free. If I had the coin I'd run something else but I don't really have a good reason to get rid of them.
