 Not a fan of oil slick, but free hubs are better than hubs I have to pay for.

 I mean, I can't imagine anyone would buy oil slick 240s, so they might as well give them away! hehe
  • 10 0
 @kcy4130: well, those 1000 pairs sold out pretty fast. I saw they when they were available I contemplated scooping up a set but took too long to deliberate. Despite being a one set per dealer kind of deal, they were gone in no time. Less that a couple of hours!

Oil slick seems to split the room. While I myself wouldn't be interested in using them on my own bike, I have a good many friends and customers who would love a set, and I wish I had acted faster.

 @privateer-wheels: I think they split the room because all of the people I have seen riding oil slick have more money than talent, but hell, that is half of the people who buy nice bikes I suppose.

 I personally don't like the oil slick look on any metal because it looks like burnt metal, especially on brake rotors. You know when your brake rotors are burning up when aluminum or steel changes color when it get really hot! Saw that on my buddy's bike when I first smelled burning metal and I took a look at his rotors - yup, he's burning steel!

 @lirch1: Hi, if you are referring to th link I posted to the picture seven posts up then that is a small chainring because it is a trials bike. @SickEdit posted one to a lovely looking BMX bike.

Were you asking about the chainring specifically or the kind of bike? Salute

 @cowboyray: I also won a bike during the advent calendar. These things are legit, unlike so many scam contest accounts on instagram. Here's the scam: Expand your followers by asking them to follow, like, tag, etc. in the hopes of winning a bike that doesn't exist in their possession. Contact you via another account, informing you that you've won another item (bag, light, cheap chinese crap, etc.), and all you have to do is pay $25 shipping for the item. Congratulations, you've just bought a $5 backpack from AliExpress for $25.

 There’s a company slikgraphics in Sweden I believe that makes different color decals for DT hubs. Or you can get some of Tim Willis’s 420s decals.

 These would stick out like a neon sign on my mismatched train wreck of a bike. Since bike looks like a Covid haircut anyway, why not dye parts rainbow Very confused

Having bearings that turn and being attached to a circular rim would be welcome mechanical upgrades.

Their marketing babble unfortunately doesn't seem to be matching up with the reality - quite a few people appear to be experiencing engagement issues with the new EXP hub - way more documented cases in the past year than the previous decade of the 350/240s version - for sure not as reliable....yet....
  • 1 1
 We've had two EXP hubs come in with stuck ratchets so far. Not a good outlook. I've literally never seen a stuck Star Ratchet on the older DT hubs.
