Bolt On is the New Black Mar 29, 2009

We’ve seen the Vallie Components hubs and before that, the Level components hubs. Well, Charge bikes is now making a bolt-on cog hub. I have to be honest, I’m pretty intrigued by these. Is this the face of street track to come?

After stripping the threads out on my Paul hub last year, it sucks to ruin a nice hub. Looks like the bolt-on design eliminates that possibility and also makes it easier to swap out cogs.

Seriously, just a torx wrench! Makes much more sense than carrying a chain whip + lock ring tool around!

Just make sure you torque those bolts like you do your chainring bolts; every other one…

Thanks Juliet!
