Cool thanks. You're definitely not a waif, but a bit lighter. It was King hubs from many years ago. Broke the 3 piece axle, got that warrantied to a solid one, still had loosening. Sold them to a lighter friend who ran them on his DH bike for years without a single problem. I've had problems with other brands with preloaders, too. Shimano were the only hubs with preload I've run that were reliable, but obviously a different system.
Stealth, 321 and Onyx all have preloaders. Will wait for a few years to see which one has best crap weather sealing and no loosening.
Bigger + aggressive - smooth + pedal a lot + ride in crap weather = lots of dead parts.
I burn through chains and chainrings weirdly fast, so drivetrains are in misery under me. Switched to a $20 steel Race Face narrow-wide for that reason. The expensive SRAM xDome cassettes are magic, totally worth it. Last way longer, so about a wash cost-wise and lighter. Hope hubs rock.
That reminds me, I need to go replace my chain.
