The hub is well priced, for what it is, @ $79.00 depending on where you get it. Yes it will definitely add a good deal of stiffness to the rear end compared to the QR axle. I actually rode on the Woodman hub (15mm axle w/ 10mm flats) for a couple of days and it was allot better feeling than the old QR. BTW, it's Jury not Fury, sold by Gusset Bikes (UK company).tsx said:is the cost of the fury hub worth replacing the stock hub? will the different axel make the rear end any stiffer? fury?
