SS with no suspension? Devin would like a word with him.

Those hub failures are amazing. What kind of power are you putting down? I only top out ~1200W in a full sprint but my 240s on the trail bike have been holding up awesome. Hadleys before that did fine as well. Little nervous about the Eastons on the xc bike at the moment.

1200W, nice. You're a better man than me. The only time I've ever measured power output is spin class and I'll maybe get 850W or 900W if I'm really, really pushing. I don't have a road bike or heart rate monitor or any of that, so I don't know how it translates.

My freehub failure wasn't during what I felt was high output, I was standing on a climb and it let go, so more of a torque and deflection situation. If I was guessing the power output based on perceived effort was probably 350 watts at most. My cadence was probably like 40 or 50 RPM.

Ha, I cannot sustain that for more than a couple seconds. I'm also terrible at endurance - partly due to pacing, partly due to focusing mostly on strength/plyo instead of sustained cardio, which is something I am working on this year so that figure might have dropped. Will find out next week.

I heard from a coach that the pro/elite enduro guys can hit around 2k watts.
