While dropping off the 29″ Freeride rim for a custom wheel build I noticed a very cool road wheel in the workshop with a HUGE hub – a Chub hub by The Hive. I’ve been messing with the idea of prototyping an oversized hub for ‘narrow’ single speed 36 wheels (for an improved feel, much like the larger Schlumpf hub provides) and here was pretty much exactly it, apart from being for a bicycle. I’ve emailed The Hive, you never know, they might be fans of unicycling!
Any news on that front ? Seemed very interesting 🙂
