Question Titanium welded 2008 KH MOMENT ISIS hub .. read in

I'm thinking of getting one.

Who rides one currently? I'm not talking about the new 2009/2010 Ti hubs with the alu flanges.

I want to know about the titanium welded ones that came out in 2008

,. But I heard people ran into problems..




Like this^

I heard a guy called Nathan Tappin also ran into a different problem like the spindle wasn't properly done and bearings or something ran into issues


ANYONE else ran into issues or know of issues?


ANND AND AND:

Do the flanges bend AT ALL like the cromo flange hubs?\


thanks

I have one but I've only had it for like a month so I haven't put it through a lot, Its on my trials uni, my one seems to be fine, But I know Joe Dyson broke his one (after a huge drop to flat Is that his one above)... yea I think there quite good for the price.

I'm riding one and it has no cracks on it, I love it! As far as I know Nathan Tappin had a few problems to fit it on his frame(Triton) when he got it but he's riding it and he has no problems with it now. I really love mine, that model looks way better than the newer one IMO.

It's a nice hub, but the price tag is a bit too high. Light, yeah, but people buy it because it's titanium and it's 'coolness'. Fair enough.

However, paying *that* much for a single product, it's gotta be damn near perfect, quality-wise and durability-wise.

I am curious, how many other Ti KH hubs ran into these issues? And from a totally honest to God standpoint, for those that own the hub, is there *any* sign of flange bending/weakness like the blue and black welded Cromo KH Moment hubs had?

That one cracking is very disappointing, I hope it's not an issue that others ran into.

I too am interested to hear from those who already ride this hub

Found this. Lighter, stronger lower profile flanges, less likely to bend. Neater. Damn it's still pretty expensive though.

One other small advantage I found of the Exceed over the KH Ti: crankstops! KH hubs need these. Small, but it is necessary on all splined drivetrains. Keeps everything more solid and stiffly stuck together.

The Exceed's flanges are closer together too. Which is great, stops people from needing to worry about some frames not fitting wide flanges.

From a totally unbiased point of view: the Exceed is more aesthetically pleasing, the welds look cleaner too.

The only reason one should go for a KH Ti over the Exceed is to support Kris.

Or if they want taller wider flanges. Yah I think Kris pushed the flange spacing a bit too far but I think he had the right idea of going as wide as possible before spoke rubbing. Fancy after-market parts need to be compatible with other people's equipment though.

I am not sure if those small flanges on the Exceed hub are such a good idea though. They are probably fine for small trials wheels but you loose some ability to efficiently transfer torque with the larger wheels. Also does anyone know if you can lace an exceed hub 4X without the spokes overlapping the adjacent spoke head? Or would people need to go with 3X? Also not a big deal but I would not like to have to pull the bearing to replace a spoke.

that exceed hub seems a lot nicer. I hate the fact the flanges are so widely spaced on the KH ISIS hubs. Makes it so easy to bend with a bad jump, while the K1 hubs have always been closer in and mine has never bent in nearly 5yrs of abuse! In fact it's the only part of my uni that hasn't broken!
