Is cadence straps really worth the money? It is quite pricey.

I was about to buy Dura Ace hubs but then I heard its a lot of maintenance since its loose bearing. I'm planning to ride it in the city and as everyday riding so rain and crazy city weather. I would get phil hubs but I'm kind of running low on budget.

I'm planning to get paul hubs for the front and gran compe hubs for the back since I heard good reviews on those hubs. Plus they fit my budget right now. I might hold off on getting the thomson stem but don't worry, I will upgrade to them!

I'd change the cog to a EAI or something. To me it doesn't make sense to spend that much money on a cog when your hubs are going to be Origin 8s or Formula's. If you had Phil hubs, that would be different because it's not recommended to use EAI cogs on Phil hubs (although people do anyway).

Despite the DA hubs being the loose ball bearing type, I've read around that they only need to be serviced a few times a year which isn't all too bad for such a smooth rolling hubset. I'd imagine servicing hubs would be pretty therapeutic.

Also, Cadence straps aren't all that expensive when you put it alongside other straps like Toshi's or Kashimax or MKS Alphas. Good foot retention goes a long way. It would kinda suck if you're going down hill and all of a sudden your straps snap or rip.

Well I kind of got the phil wood cog for cheap so I bought it

Yeah, I rather still buy sealed bearing because I really don't feel like servicing the DA hubs and while having to go to school on the other hand too
