Default Anabolix hubs

Anyone purchased and skated the new Anabolix Virtual Concepts 4D hubs?

I don't believe that they are pouring tyres to suit these hubs, only modifying pre existing tyres.

What do you base this statement on? I am still learning but you may be right. I thought all their wheels fit the new hubs. I will see the owner, Michael Elsbury, Wednesday night and ask him. He teaches a speed skating class that meets after my club skating session.

Hi,

I had a look at the URL above. I noticed the statement "Creates a Dual Pour Simulation with a Single Tire" Is that because there are two different thicknesses on the tire? I thought all fanjet style hubs had this design?

By looking at the pictures of them and seeing the machining marks.

By machining out the step for the hub it creates a dual duro tyre?

Hope I explain this correctly as I am just learning all this.

You are correct. He says the initial investment was the molds for the hubs and chose to defer investment in tires until confident that the hubs were a success; now in the process of producing the tires but it will take a while.

Hub design with varying tire thickness creates better roll for a given durometer without compromising grip.

He also produces a hub(solid without the wholes that fanjet hubs have) that fits his tires which are same as fanjets.

He is also going to produce tires to fit Deanos/Pacos hubs.

Funny, if you select any of the nice looking wheels they all say "Out of Stock". I'm sure sooner or later Doc or Danny (dvw) will roll a set and we will have feedback.

I can't imagine.

Plastic hubs use molds, aluminum hubs are machined out of rod.

We have seen something very much like this before (only much cooler...) Wheels from Hebegb and scott. Unfortunately we can't see it now due to the d1c7ish behavior of Photobucket...

Okay, so I used the wrong terminology - investment in the hubs and testing market. Initial sales went well and he is going to produce more.

The only reason I pointed that out is there is a HUGE difference in cost. With CNC the "cost" for producing a limited set of aluminum hubs is quite modest once you have a good set of CAD drawings. Compared to making injection molds and pre-CNC methods the cost could almost be said to be negligible.

Optimizing CNC machine time can be quite expensive but on such a simple part that will be produced in less than huge quantities it is unlikely that step is needed.

Thanks for the info, only trying to help with your learning...

Default cnc is cheaper initially.

Once a good set of molds are made, plastic parts can be produced very quickly. In the long term, plastics can be much cheaper if the production run is long. Once plastics are started up, the longer the production runs, the cheaper it is. I once worked at Igloo Coolers, the injection machines can have a high output and be run completely unmanned.

Default I coulnt find a thread on the purple reigns/rains

Idk how to spell them but what an impressive wheel .
They squeeel like piggys. Aka purple wicked lips and louder than anything but the owner had boiled them in water to get the mould releasing compound off.
The week b4 had trouble getting them to grip but this week was having a ball on these things.
Does anyone know any info on the duro , where they are made and why they sound that good?
