Soma 48h Track Hubs
With the growing popularity of aggressive fixed wheel riding and hardcourt bicycle polo, the demand for 48h track hubs has spiked. For freestyle riding, the 48 spokes are stronger than more common 32 or 36 count varieties, additionally for polo the 48 spoke lacing pattern makes it impossible for a ball to squeeze through any of the gaps. Soma Fabrications recently made a limited run of their Somax track hubs with 48 holes, retailing at roughly $60 for the front and $75 for the rear hub. Demand will determine if another run of them is created, but given the relative difficulty in acquiring the few 48h track hubs currently on the market something tells me sales of these limited Somax versions will be brisk.
