So I was just wondering what are some good hubs that current shiftkit user's are using?
If it blew just putt-putting around the house - then it would have blew under pedal power sooner rather than later. Do tell what what blew, what exact kind of hub it was, etc.
Most people use a variety of Shimano hubs and derailleur systems with great success.
