No doubt, but I think Badcooky was referring to the XRR not the XRL...could be wrong. The XRR and XRL aren't even close to each other as they pretty much only share the name on the badge.

Anything wrong with going the hex hub/carrier route? It's a little cheaper than the Talon set-up AND I guess you can use the wheels on other bikes in the future by swapping carriers.
