Here’s a little news that a few of you have been waiting on for… a decade. Flybikes have announced that their Magneto Cassette hub will be finally dropping this summer! Now, I know a bunch of you are going to say “I’ve heard all this before…” which is a pretty understandable response. It was set to release a few times and it hasn’t happened. This time around is a little different. I spoke with Flybikes owner David, and this time around it’s not a joke… Infact, it’s currently in production! There were a lot of setbacks from having to find the perfect manufacturer (this hub won’t be made in Taiwan) and they ended up changing manufacturers a handful of times in the process. Along with that, they’ve put a TON of time into testing to ensure there weren’t going to be flaws with the design.
No specifics of what’s going on internally yet, BUT full details will be coming very soon. We do know that it will be available in left and right hand drive with 9 and 10-tooth drivers, though! We will keep you posted as soon as we know more!
Hey, if the Cyclops stem can happen, there’s no reason to give up hope on this one!
