Nope. I never really bothered to count the holes. I specifically emailed Boygofast how many holes the hub had with the 'Ask A Seller A Question Feature' and he told me "36." He lied to me as there are 40. I also asked him if with this freewheel hub if I would have to get a pull start and a wide crank kit and he never responded to that.

Also I noticed that the holes in his hub are not staggered on the right and left sides like normal hubs are. It's totally useless.

Fortunately I have the means to make another hub that will work with my lathe. Probably cost me $10 or so.
