hub was developed due to enormous public pressure to make a 36 hole front
I have always resisted making a 36 spoke hub (though I did make some
in the early days) because running a 36 requires much greater care be taken
to keep the spokes tight and even. But over the last few years a lot of riders
have bugged me to make a 36 hole front hub and have proved that they can
make it last by looking after their wheels.
So finally, I am proud to announce the launch of the MARMOSET 36 hole
ULTRA-LIGHT-WEIGHT front hub.
The MARMOSET uses exactly the same axle and bolts as the Monkey hub (3/8"
bolts to fit normal small dropouts). Machined from 7075 T6 aluminium but
with stainless steel helicoils to support the axle bolts. This is a light
weight axle you CAN run pegs with without being paranoid about bending it.
As in the 48 hole Monkey hub this axle is suitable for ramp, park and
all but the hardest street use. But even if you dont use pegs this hub may
appeal simply because it weighs just 8.9ounces!
(If not being used with pegs shorter axle bolts can be substituted
for those included with the hub. This will get the weight down below 9ounces.)

and comes with BLACK collars.
