Two weeks ago, I got an email from a reader who came across the new Formula hubs via their Raleigh Rep. I was sworn to silence and now I have the go-ahead to post them up. Looks like a pretty rad solution for stripping hub threads and it’s a definite push in the right direction. Still though, to use a lockring? Why not get rid of threads all together? My source said that these will appear on the 2011 Raleigh Rush Hours with a 16t cog. Interesting. I wonder how small of a tooth count you could go with these splines?

Thanks to Andrea for the heads up!
