What is the advantage? Being able to move with cranks I can shift my body weight where I need. Also does not feel like having my feet just on BB keeps me well balanced on bike as normally I would have one leg way far in front and one behind.

Hard to accept the price tag of the Enduro brakeset vs some others on the block. The new Hayes, Hope, Magura etc. And the weight is marginally lighter when compared 4 piston to 4 piston. I'll leave out Guides as they are terrible! And it sure seems the actual...more

Its not a nite-mare for us as a shop, but when the customers do not bring them in on a regular basis for maintenance it becomes a nite-mare! The King hub, as great a company as they are, need 2-4x the love versus most others.

well, I work at a shop too and have expirience with i9 dt shimano and hope and my kings are the ones who need less maintenance.. on the other hand, shimano is completly diferent, bearings need much more love than others, and I actually agree with their thoughs about bearings, its not about it..with the hub tool, kings are easy to service, and I know the tool is damn expensive, but I woulnt buy such expensive hubs if I couldnt service them right..(king bearings=bulletproof)

The problem is if you limit the wheel size you are then giving the advantage to the smaller and lighter riders who fit the 27.5 platform better. What is next limiting everyone to flat pedals because clips give you more power, everyone has to run 165mm cranks...more
