      Does anyone have any experience using a floating sprocket hub on a TaG?  I’ll be using it for both sprint and road racing.  Need to know if it’s reliable and/or worth it.  Thanks

      I give a triple thumbs up to floating sprocket hubs.  I was busting chains right and left until I switched to one.  Haven’t suffered a broken chain in 2 years.  A floating hub with o-ring chain is the way to go.  The carrier itself is just as reliable as a fixed one.

      That has not been my experience.

      I’ve had experience with it a few times its defiantly worth speed if your looking for that last bit and speed down the straight but on a leopard a floating sprocket is pretty radical and if you even ding a curb so bye bye to your chain.

      Thanks guys.  I think I’ll stick to the fixed sprocket hubs.
