KH/Schlumpf hub price

I don't know if it has been posted yet, but i just checked the Schlumpf website, and they posted the price of the KH/Schlumpf hub. It's $1268 USD (about $300 more than the standard Schlumpf hub).

I'm surprized how quiet this news is. The cost is not as high as I feared. Hmmmmm.

Its interesting to see that the original hub comes with crankarms, whereas the KH one doesn't. Maybe they're expecting people to be building up their own setups from parts with the Muni hub, but buying them built up with the standard? Its not that important, since the double-hole cranks are only an extra £50 and you've already paid £600 for the hub.

I also thought the hub would be a lot more than £600. You could build up a seriously awesome geared muni for less than £1000.

Loose.

Unless you're strapped for cash, the muni hub for sure. With the high gear, you aren't going to want shorter than 125mm cranks (probably 150s), so the 150 cranks (or 150/125mm dual hole) are available. The hub is wider (although I think the new road hub may be wide too?), so should work better with a big wheel. Also, the strengthened shift buttons / levers are an advantage probably worth paying extra for.

The muni hub will definitely be worth the extra cash. That hub plus the dual drilled cranks = perfection. I think that I might be putting the hub on a 29er though now since I am planning on doing a lot of traveling this summer and want something extremely versatile and smaller than the 36. Actually, it was seeing how easily Joe was able to carry his schlumpf 29 all around everywhere and the use he got out of it in NZ and AUS by doing long distance road rides and long muni rides with it that made me realize how great it would be for traveling.

I really want to put it in a 36" wheel though as well. I think it would be the ultimate road uni with those dual drilled cranks and 2 gears. Combine that with the Ti frame and wow...talk about amazing. I'll have to hold off on that though I guess and see how the hub does in the 29er.

I'm going to see if I can place an order now. I have been waiting a while for this hub to come out.

Are they actually shipping them already? Tell us how the ordering process goes, Siafirede.

It should if it's bearing holders are 42 mm. If they'er 40, that could be a problem.

What about for a 29"? I'm just planning to do road riding so I'm assuming that the muni hub would be a waste of money -- yes/no?

I'm also thinking of buying a complete uni from them rather than just a hub. I'm lazy that way. Anybody know what the prices have been for that?

Maybe. The standard hub requires a frame that can handle the "torque lever"--you can see it in the picture on Schlumpf's website. There's a standard Schlumpf frame that will easily work with the standard hub, but the frame itself is not so good for a number of reasons, as I've heard/read. I don't know that there are any other 29er frames that would work without modification.

Also, dual drilled crank arms for the standard hub may be harder to acquire. Of course, if you're only riding on the road, you might not care so much.

On the other hand, the MUni hub fits the very nice KH frame, and dual drilled splined cranks are readily available--the splined interface is good for distance riding because you don't have to worry as much about it coming loose.

Does it? "Much less slop" may be an overstatement. I've ridden the standard one, and I don't remember much slop, if any.
