Review: Industry Nine's New Hydra Hubs Have 690 Points of Engagement
you simply cant have individually phased pawls and expect them to last. Especially when the teeth are so tiny. there is the entire force of the riders torque on one tiny pawl at a time. there is no metal with the hardness known to man that will stand up to the tortures of shredders that is needed to machine pawls out of. I9 made a huge mistake here. They could have introduced the new ring with more teeth but for gods sake keep the 2 phases with three pawls each. 3 pawls spaced at 120 degrees apart is the perfect mechanical arrangement to distribute force evenly throughout the ring. BAD MISTAKE I9. Sit back and watch them fail. too bad they went overboard on a great product.

Good Ideas Executed Poorly - Opinion
For all you centerlock guys..... the problem is aluminum on aluminum. If you have even the slightest amount of tolerance play between something like a splined axle centerlock rotor as braking forces go back and fourth the splines will eventually wear in. If it was steel on steel this process would take a lot longer but aluminum on aluminum just shouldnt exist for brake rotors. Shimano splined crankarms work because you can tighten the crank in the spline so no play exists. ^bolt rotors are the way to go.....

This is a 2016 Giant Reign 2 frame. The frame is in very good condition, sad to say it did sustain a few "rubs" from 2 shuttle rides it went on but all that's missing is a bit of paint. This bike was lightly used and kept inside with an estimate of 20 rides on it. I swapped it for another frame that fit me better. So i left the headset cups/bearings and bottom bracket pressed in to make it easier on whoever buys this.There is a dt swiss 142mm x12mm rear axle included. Just slap your parts on and go. The BB is a shimano bb92 that will fit any solid 24mm crank spindle i think. the headset is a fsa tapered inset style and comes with a brand new fork crown race and star nut. comes with seat post clamp and all cable plugs for internal routing. Rockshox monarch R rear shock (shock stanction has a tiny hair scratch at the bottom of the stroke that does not affect the shocks performance and is too small to take a picture of). Front derailleur mount plug. I do have a Giant brand dropper post 100mm that i can sell for an extra 150. Also race face turbine cranks and blackspire 36 snaggletooth chainring for $125

second time around Stans ZTR Arch EX rims. 32 hole. Rims were laced to a set of chris king hubs. I do still have the spokes id throw in for anyone paying the 100. These rims are in used condition with tiny ticks out of the rim surfaces from airborne rocks and such. Both are true and have no damage otherwise.
