    • I’ve been waiting since the beginning of December for an orange pair of R45 hubs. I keep getting told that they are running new batches every few weeks but I guess the color keeps coming out wrong.

    I’m starting to think they want me to go to Industry 9.

    • Orange has been a color that is difficult for many brands, as of late. And, for what it is worth, the I9 hubs are pretty badass, or Onyx if you want instant engagement.

What do you think?
