It is weird. The hub seemed to weigh less after the wheel was built. It is a good ride and functions as expected. The gear ratio is a little tighter then I expected but it shifts well. It was easy to install and looks really good. They plastic cover is awkward as I installed the hub on an old road bike with shorter stays so my foot hits the cover, if I am not centered on the pedal. The coaster brake will take more practice. It was been a long time since my last coaster brake.
