I happened to be trying to use it right when they switched over. The new colson hubs look sweet!

I got them early, they are pretty neat but REALLY a pain in the butt to get onto smaller colsons, I ended up freezing the wheel, milling out the plastic under the rubber a little and pressing that little bastard into the space :)

Bigger ones where you can use the threaded holes they will be aces

I think Marc D put up a video of pressing hubs he made into colsons for Ice Wave. I think he (actually Angela) heated the hubs up with a torch first. I wonder if that would work to get these onto the smaller wheels....

If you are ordering colsons from banebots as well, can order them installed in the colson. (Doesn't cost anymore than ordering hubs separately and installing yourself)
