    Hollowcage has been a bit of a disaster for AB’s PR departement. See hambini’s video…

    Never seen the KOM hubs before and they look really interesting – thanks for digging those out.

    Looking at those KOM hubs 9n their website, they have the potential to be interesting, but the reality is, they say nothing about them other than marketing claims. There’s no detail at all. All I got from the website was that they’re “different”, might not fit your frame and need a proprietary rotor.

    So AB’s decided to get Hambini’s video blocked rather than addressing the points he made.
    Great case of companies ‘layering up’ so they never let the technic criticism get in the way of marketing.
    Interesting too that a user has identified from bitter experience it seems that the AB cage design doesn’t adequately guide the chain like one from Shimano or SRAM or even Ceramic Speed, so can result in the chain crossing up on the bottom pulley and jamming when the chain bounces or you back pedal. (Wrecking a very £££ part and possibly your Dura Ace rear mech whilst at it).

    Angry shouty man is angry and shouty?

    Haven’t watched the video, haven’t seen anything other than a picture of the cage and thought, ‘oh, that looks cool’.

    Do you think they could get the rest of them blocked too?

    He’s an odious misogynistic bellend who deserves to be shut down for good.
