I’ve read some good/bad things about the hub regarding durability. What’s it like?

Nothing to note so far, people might be skeptical as the system uses very small teeth. However there are 6 or so pawls with multiple teeth and these pawls wedge against the drive ring when engaged, similar to a sprag clutch - freewheeling retracts them towards the axle, pedaling pushes them all evenly into the drive ring. I would guess these can handle bigger loads than most pawl hubs.

They do use rather basic bearings however that's nothing to note, it keeps the initial cost down and then you can fit whatever you lie once they're worn. that being said I''m still on my first bearings since i got the wheels in 2016, being used to commute 4 miles a day every day!

I've had mine for three years on the bike I ride the most, not a single problem.

Ah okay sick! The price point is what attracted me so it’s cool to hear that they are good

It's not worth it man, no matter what parts you put on it the frame will still feel really shitty on jumps. The standover is just too high.

Your best bet is to just buy a used dirt jumper.

Anyone know of a jump bike that comes with gusset parts as standard? Trying to id a frame i have and it came with matching red gusset bars, gusset seat clamp and gusset headset cap. No markings on the frame though and its getting really annoying!! The frame itself is a translucent/candy red and it has a large gusset where the downtube meets the headtube. Any help would be awesome!!

Looks like it’s been sprayed, also looks pre 2013

The paint is pretty scratched but looks like a good job. Like a really deep candy/translucent red. Would have been a decent spray job if so, deffo didnt come out a rattle can! Lol
