Can the hubs be anodised gold ???
Within reason cant the gpr70s go off road
can i still fit a 310mm disc to my wheels to improve stoppers,obviously with bracket
am i right in thinkin the gpr 70s are better than the 80s for dual purpose
You can't anodise cast hubs.Another Con is that the hubs can break when stressed supermoto stylee. XR hubs have been known to break and Mad Roy broke a KTM hub as well. They aren't made for SM.
Errmmmm but they are OK for MX ???? Biggest prob is that some people do NOT leave enought slack in the chain..stressing the hub and breaking it....IMHO , if a Hub is good enough for enduro/mx, it's good enough for SM.....
Funners, the XR prob is down to the spoke thickness although I suspect wheels intended for MX use stress the hubs less because of the inherent flex designed into the wheel. Also, do MX wheels not have less spokes than road wheels? This used to be a problem with converting old CR's in that more spokes were needed to stop the wheel flexing too much.Read that in a September 1876 copy of RiDE.
