So jealous hearing about you guys preparing for a season of 4X.
No such luxury here. Cry

No it f*cking sucks here in Oz!! MTBA should bring back 4X and run a national series again. Or allow smaller promoters to run them with MTBA endorsement

The reason they stopped running events was because no one was showing up to support them. I did the last national series in 2012 and the numbers were embarrassing.

So I threw up my Yeti a couple weeks ago thinking about running it for slalom but the geo was pretty wrong. The front was just way too low and the bb was too tall. I then thought about just running my DJ bike but the thing doesn't have a derailleur hanger and has a spanish bb (can't throw on a mtb chainring). I've been sitting on some DMR chain tugs that have a hanger so file them down to fit and got a Profile Racing spider and the thing seems to work prety well. Took it to the BMX track last night and it rips. Weighs ~27lbs

They're pretty sweet. I've kinda been looking at replacing it but every other bike I hop on just doesn't feel the same.

Reminds me of my old Suburban.

I replaced mine with an airdrop fade. Pretty similar geometry but a longer reach. going from xl downhill bikes the bike felt a bit too cramped and too much of a change, not had chance to ride the airdrop properly yet but first impressions are good

Hey everyone, I could really use some help finding a nice rear hub that can fit a 7 speed cassette. Complete 26” wheels would also work! I’m gonna be using a box one 7 speed if that helps

Depending how wide the box cassette is. It may fit on a hope pro4 hub.

The Box 7-speed cassette will fit on any HG spline hub. So the world is your oyster when it comes to hub options. Only the SRAM XG-795 requires an XD driver.

The coolguy move is to get a singlespeed hub and cram gears on there, though that typically limits you to 5-6.

Turner 4X Hadley Singlespeed rear wheel with 5 11 XTR M9000 cogs

This Hadley SS will fit 6 11-speed cogs and a spacer.

My bad. Was talking about the pro4ss hub. Phone did some autocorrecting. The regular pro4 will fit any cassette that is hg or if you get the xd driver. The pro4ss will fit 6 or 7 gears depending what spd you run

Right, but the Box cassette comes with a spacer to take up the extra space behind the 7 cogs, so it's designed to work on a regular geared HG freehub body.
