- Bikes Direct has posted on Bike Forums that their asian manufacturer has received his S3X hubs and the bikes and wheelsets are on the way, Availability here in about 30 days. Prices listed are $250 for a wheelset with bar end shifter and $450 for a bike. The wheelset is both front and rear wheels.
I have never dealt with Bikes Direct but the price looks very reasonable for the wheelset if the rims are decent. Seen both good and unfavorable posts about the company.
Presumably American distributors should have the S3X hubs and shifters soon.
