    I would LOVE to have a Clark Kent Pineapple Hub with the snowflake spokes as a front wheel.

    A little bit of White Industries: 033218c530f039c986a2464084f062b7.jpg Does that Nukeproof set look titanium? More like titani-YUM!

    Okay, I guess I am not so into weird hubs. Most of the ones I like are more on the simple side. How about a Circus Monkey for some weirdness:

    None of these are mine. I need more bikes so I can buy components.

    The Hadleys were the best I ever used.

    I did have a cool set of Bontragers with built in grease ports....probably around ‘99-‘00

    The White ENO eccentric single speed hub is crazy cool, but never had a reason to own one.

    Oops..... front hubs....go look up the White ENO anyway....it’s that cool

    I've heard that the pineapple hubs were prone to breakage. Any truth to the rumors?

    I do not know. Many weird mountain bike products are prone to breakage because of abuse on rough terrain. If I hat one, it would be just for road riding.

    Learning how to do that is one of my winter projects. I have black hubs and spokes that I want to lace to a set of aluminum and black hoops. I'll be satisfied if I can get them close to round, let the LBS true them
