    No spacers were used

    No spacers were used. That hub has about 500miles on it now.

    so the hub was made with that amount of dish on purpose? seems like they just took an xt hub body and cobbled it together

    It looks like it wouldn't offer a very good chain line.

    Tis true.......

    All I need to fix a plane is a hammer, some speed tape and safety wire, and the all powerful pencil. Now I am on the other side of the fence and I get to fly and break the planes.

    The chainline.....

    The chaineline can be moved in 4mm, or out 2mm from what is in the photo. Depends on how you place the spacers.

    Well they say.........

    They say that take-offs are optional but landings are mandatory. Also your take-offs and landings should always be the same number.(bad thing if you have to bail out)

    I thought it was gauze pads, 3-in-1 oil and about ten quarts of anti-freeze - preferably Prestone... no, make that Quaker State. S

    Couldn't you solve the dish issue by using one of the 150mm-spaced Saint hubs and the DX cassette body?

    Saint hub........

    The Saint hub is very different in the way the freehub engages the hub. I just looked up the PDF drawings. I was asked about the dish issue when I built it up and it's just as strong as a regular geared wheel. I have not had to true is at all.
