The Tree Bike Co Straight Pull front hub features a special bearing system that allows the hub to roll as freely as possible without resistance so it's the best spinning hub out there. Straight pull spokes are stronger than J bend spokes because they work purely on the tensile strength of the spoke. Tensile strength is the resistance to the spoke being pulled at both ends. By using a straight pull spokes design we creating one of the strongest and stiffest wheels in BMX. It's really easy to lace the wheel, just push the spoke into the hub and the spoke goes right to the corresponding hole in the rim. Built up the spokes create a noticeably stiffer wheel. The spokes are laced 5 cross. I chose 5 cross because it made it possible to assemble the wheel where there was room to feed the spokes into the hub. The spokes lace perpendicular to the center of the hub which is the strongest lacing pattern for wheels. Hub comes with a replaceable 7075 T6 aluminum Tree hub guard that protects the spokes from damage during grinding. The axle has a unique thread design that prevents cross threading. The bolts thread directly into the 7075 T6 aluminum axle. Our tests have shown that the aluminum threads are very strong so that under high torque the bolt will pull apart before the threads strip out. The 3/8in heat-treated chromoly axle bolts are made to be used directly with the ratchet or extension. So there are less tools to keep in your bag SPECS 6061 T6 aluminum shell 17mm 7075 aluminum internal axle Specifically for use w/ Tree Twigs n' Berries straight pull spokes 5 cross lace pattern Low friction bearing design Comes with a 7075 T6 aluminum Tree hub guard SIZES 36 hole 3/8" axle bolts COLORS Black, Blue, Red, Gold, or Silver WEIGHT 8.3oz/293g
