I have a primo pro wheelset now in black. and my friend said i should get a cassette hub just i dont know what the F*^% the difference is. I kniw you can run really small cogs but what else is there. Also what kind should i get: Hazard lite with hazard cassette. hazard lite with primo cassette. or primo hula hoop with hazard cassette or primo cassette.

you don't need a cassette hub...just to clarify that...freewheels are just as good if they are kept up...the reason people are getting the cassette hubs is because of the smaller gearing that riders want (like me)

but you don't need to listen to your friend when he says you SHOULD get a cassette hub...get one after you read that above...if they are for you.

i have the primo and its a pile of shit. my mate has had one and he bust it, then he got another a few months later (the one he has now) and he has already had to buy a new axle and the cone ****ed up

my primo is just balls, its heavy, stupidly wide, it slips, its not smooth


i have ordered an odyssey, primo sucks

Yes of course my friend obviously must suck, i mean, what the hell was i thinking, it must take a totally shit rider to brake a £130 hub


and the primo IS ****ing heavy you retard, i think i would know i do own one. Its like 6oz heavier then others, thats almost half a pound


and why the **** would i be lying about my friend?

your so ****ing dumb, no wonder why you blend in with this board so well, before you post anymore bullshit maybe you should consider killing yourself

thats what happens when you dont keep spokes tightened. so many riders fail to do it.

as far as a cassette...i think the Odyssey is better than the Primo.

well like u said u can run them smaller they also have sealed bearings to be smoother and longer lastin of course i havent riden one since i dont have the money but i also heard they dont have as good engage as a freewheel so overall they can run smaller, have sealed bearings, and last longer then a freewheel(i didnt add in the fact of a rear hub for the freewheel)

ok the rim is not heavy at all the primo is 20.1 oz. the oddysey hazard lites are 17.7 and those arent that strong. Sun 4-play is 23.9. ok so primo hula hoops are not heavy at all. If anything your fat ass is too heavy.

see you people don't get it.

i don't sit around and be like oh this is lighter or oh i need this because its not as heavy as this part over here that is stronger oh oh oh.

my WTP 4 seasons is 6 pounds 14 oz...i bought a Mutiny Punisher and that is 7 pounds 4 oz...as i was saying i wasn't like oh i need something lighter than my 4 seasons...i just bought the mutiny because it was on sale and i love that frame.

i just pick the parts out that i feel will hold up good...i NEVER even look at the weight before i buy dude...i mean i probally have the heaviest wheel setup in the world...i don't care..i just buy what i think i can trust to hold up good...after i built up my bike i put it on the scale and it was only 27.4 pounds...ok so i get a light bike...that means i should die?...im not being a hypocrit...i don't count the weight of my bike...i just buy what I PERSONALLY think is strongest.

good question though..i was waiting for some moron to call me a hypocrit.
