The heart of Project 321 high-engagement low-drag hubs - magnet actuated pawls.


PRESS RELEASE: PROJECT 321 Inc.

We are excited to announce that Project 321 is under new ownership and moving north to Canada!

Here is what you need to know:

• Project 321 Inc., a newly created stand-alone Canadian entity, has acquired the Project 321 brand and its hub related assets;
• Project 321 Inc. has the capacity and ambition to scale into an industry leading cycling component manufacturer that will focus on OEM, aftermarket, and direct sales;
• A Generation 3 (“G3”) Project 321 hub is currently being tested and its official release date will be announced this quarter.
• The Generation 2 (“G2”) hub has been discontinued and is no longer available for sale; and
• Existing warranties will be honoured, and spare parts and service will continue to be available.

PROJECT 321 TIMELINE

Early Days

Project 321 was founded 17 years ago by Jake Liles in Fresno, California, and initially produced motorcycle gas caps. The foray into bicycle components began in 2005 with the development of Lefty fork adapters. Bicycle hub manufacturing started in 2011, initially utilizing drive rings and pawls sourced from Industry Nine.

Project 321 introduced its magnet-actuated pawl hubs in January of 2017 with the launch of the G2 Hub. The G2 was equipped with a class-leading 216 points of engagement and unique optionality for both quiet and loud driver configuration. Overall, the G2 offered a compelling combination of high-engagement and low-drag, quickly developing a reputation for outstanding performance and reliability. In late 2017, Jake moved shop from Fresno to Bend, Oregon. The move enabled him to increase quality and production capacity by bringing nearly all manufacturing in-house. In the years following, Jake and his partner Sam grew Project 321 into an internationally recognized brand with a dedicated following.

G3 Hub and Stan's

With over five years of experience manufacturing and refining the G2 hub design, Jake was confident that any issue observed in the field with early versions had been addressed with running design changes; the G2 was now tested and proven. True to his nature, Jake got restless and started thinking of a new and improved G3. Around the same time, Stan’s No Tubes approached Project 321 for help developing a rear hub, and Jake went to work on a new design.

Ownership Transition and Moving North

With the launch of the Stan’s MPluse hub (which includes several G3 components manufactured by Project 321), the global increase demand for cycling components, and the commitments of a growing family, Jake and Sam started to feel that it might be time to start to look to transition Project 321. Around this time, Jake was introduced to Bryden Richardson, the CEO of a precision manufacturing company that was exploring the idea of designing and manufacturing bicycle hubs.

It’s funny how the world can work, as they both had exactly what the other was looking for. Jake had a strong brand and a product known for quality and reliability. Bryden and his team had experience scaling businesses in precision manufacturing (North Arc Precision) and sporting goods components (TriggerTech). TriggerTech was founded in 2013 and has grown to become an industry leading supplier of trigger components to OEMs, aftermarket, and consumers in the firearms and crossbow space. To meet the growing needs of TriggerTech, North Arc Precision was created to act as a stand-alone precision manufacturing business with specific expertise in Wire EDM fabrication, CNC machining and complex assembly processes. North Arc Precision has the capacity and expertise to meet Project 321’s growing manufacturing needs on day one.

Research quickly turned to negotiations and after a few months Project 321 Inc. was formed as a stand-alone entity to acquire the brand and hub-related assets from Jake and Sam’s holding company, JLSO Inc.

Gearing up for Canadian Production.

What is Next?

Project 321 is moving all operations to a 42,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Mississauga, Ontario. From Canada, Project 321 will have the capacity and ambition to scale into an industry leading cycling component manufacturer that will supply OEMs, wholesalers, wheel builders, retail shops, and consumers directly.

A brand-new G3 hub is currently in is in the final stages of testing and its official release date will be announced this quarter.

G2 hub production has been discontinued, but service and spare parts will continue to be available. All existing warranties will be honored from the new Canadian headquarters.

 This is how business works, and for every entrepreneur, this is what the end-goal truly is. Providing a steady living for yourself and others, doing what you love. And to have a larger company, tooled for success, be able to buy you out and carry on your companies legacy with ability to expand, all the while cashing out and being able to somewhat retire and put money towards new projects (no pun intended) is just icing on the cake. Congrats to Jake and his family, THAT is the American (or North American now?) dream!

 @VonFalkenhausen: there is no viable comprimise between capitalism and socialism. both denature the other.

one of those systems has brought the world from 90% living in poverty to 10% in 125 years, the other has directly killed 100,000,000 people.

 I don't know man... seeing small or medium brand being purchased by larger company even if it benefits that brand always makes me imagine scenarios when at the end there will be just a few big brands or even one for particular industry\product and you and me as a final consumer will suck a dick instead of choices and good old competitiveness.

Smart driven people are always going to get tired of working for large companies and those with big enough balls are going to branch out on their own, innovate on what they know, and continue the cycle. There’s a choice to buy from a small company on virtually everything. It’s up to you if that is the most important thing to you. It very likely won’t be the cheapest price though.

 @jaytdubs: yes, but only capitalism....true, capitalism(not crony capitalism, or corporatism like is currently what passes as capitalism in the US and other western countries), has the mechanisms to combat those human inclinations....not only that, but those mechanisms if left to operate, make the system more resilent to further bad actors in the future.

communism/socialism work completely oppositely. They concentrate the worst of the worst at the top and reward ever more depravity.

 @conoat: The end point of unfettered capitalism is just as grim as socialism or communism. Human nature is the true opponent to the success of any pure ideology, and while there may be some hybrid systems of compromise that can somewhat counter it, our pooch is still most likely screwed in the end.

I think folks get confused about our US economic system (its supporting institutions and resulting outcomes) as being an example (product of) of "pure capitalism", it most certainly is not. Croney capitalism, or corporatism, as you point out is much closer to what we have.
  • 3 1
 @SinglespeedAssassin: pure capitalism has been tried, and it worked right up until we decided to give some people power over others. Then it is corrupted by those people and used to enrich themselves. that isn't a knock on capitalism, it's a knock on authority. The inanimate system does nothing. people do. just like guns...


evidence in your latter sentence is very obvious and out in the open, if you choose to see it. Socialism almost always leads to genocide, famine and death. ALWAYS. History doesn't lie, but people sure do about history.
  • 1 0
 @conoat: You're so close and yet still so far. Pure capitalism is nothing more than a silly impossible fantasy, just like world peace and libertarianism. It has never worked because human greed eventually ruins everything, it's baked in and unavoidable. It is the primary thing that an attempt must be made to rein in to have any kind of tenuous grasp on a somewhat prosperous, peaceful, and just societal system, and that's really about the best you can hope for as history has proven again and again.

 @VonFalkenhausen: human greed isn't a bad thing, though. greed is what gets you out of bed in the morning. A drive for resources, is innate in all living animals. Saying we need to dictate other's lives to them from an ivory tower, is laughable at the very least. It's evil if you look at it objectively.

 As the owner of a set of G2 hubs for a number of years now, I really can't see how they would be upgraded! The stock bearings are ridiculously smooth and the freehub has such a noticeable lack of drag, the wheels just spin forever in the work stand. On the trail it means more speed. I'd come off a few sets of King (and a very brief but poor experience with Hope pro 4) . I hope the brand stays true to its roots, shame to see it go to s#*t.

Kings aren't practical, but can perform well for a long time if maintained, but so can lots of hubs. There are some things I just like indulging in sometimes.
  • 9 0
 @Frank191: eh King is highly overrated and that’s from someone who’s sold a ton of them and was a king fan. There is nothing wrong with them but they’re not that special. The reason they feel so good in your hands on the showroom is they use an extremely low viscosity grease and their bearing don’t even have real seals more like a dust cover. Ride them through a true muddy wonder and see how good they feel after and then tear it apart and see how much grit has managed to get into the hub. I’ve never owned hope Huns but built wheels for other with them and they’ve been solid but the most underrated hubs I’ve experienced are hadleys, smooth, adjustable preload, and the urethane seals on the axles work very well, low stage and always clean inside.

Repack it once in a blue moon, with some grease I find in the shed, commuted year round in Canada for 15 and now daily in NZ. Miles on miles on miles. That’s an impressive a feat. A $700 proprietary bearing/grease/hub better outlast it at the very least.
  • 1 0
 @jesse-effing-edwards: lol yea I feel ya. Since going the reserve route I’m not building my own wheels anymore but man did I love my hadleys. Hubs in general have all gotten pretty good though so now I just ride what they came with (in this case i9 1/1) and if the bearings fail I can always buy a premium bearing of the same size. But I can already see the axles aren’t sealed like the hadleys so more crap will get in, I’m surprised hadleys aren’t more popular in the UK wheee they’d really shine.

 @Jesse221: It's cause they don't have a website, or do marketing, or seemingly want to make money at all.

They get nothing but good reviews.

 @pakleni: yeah I would rate them above king hubs for the trail speed. I run the high engagement quiet pawls. When coasting, the lower amount of resistance in the hub allows you to keep speed for longer and with less input. The louder the hub generally the more resistance it will have.
Quality is on par with King as far as build and finish.

Jake dug in and was able to retrieve a bunch and he, Sam, and I, have been tag teaming replying to them together. If you've not received a reply to an email, then I sincerely apologize, your email may have been lost permanently. It was not in Jake's nature to leave people hanging, nor is it in ours. On new hubs, we'll kindly ask for your patience on that one, and promise you that it will be worth the wait. We are between product generations here as you can tell, and our team and Jake are fully focused on nailing the new G3 hubs. We currently have G3 hubs in testing, and we want to be sure we nail all aspects of the new design so we can do our customers justice with the update, and turn out hubs we are completely confident in and proud to call Project 321. Hubs you'll be proud to build up yourself.

 The silver lining in an era of overpriced bike parts is 2nd tier stuff that's as good or better than the "best" components. I9 1/1 and DT350 hubs come to mind as outstanding products at a reasonable(ish) price.
