Planning a Shimano build for the new year? Looks like you’re going to have even more options when it comes to wheels – just as Shimano told us. This week we’ve seen Micro Spline announcements from Chris King, Hope Tech, and now… Stan’s No Tubes!
According to their Facebook post, Stan’s says that while the hub pictured is still a prototype – it’s the last prototype. The hubs, and more importantly freehubs, have passed all testing and the option is approved for full production. Stan’s also states that the MS freehubs are compatible with existing Neo hubs so retrofitting your current wheels should also be an option.
Stan’s will have Micro Spline freehubs in Durasync Red and Speed Sync Silver in stock around early February. Pricing isn’t specified, but if it follows the pricing breakdown of their currrent freehubs, you’ll be looking around $80 for the Durasync and $130 for the Speedsynce replacement freehub kits.
