Strengths:    Lightness, looks nice.

Weaknesses:    Bearings and aluminium hub axle. If bearings get dirty axle is immediately spoiled. Also cassette splines are easily spoiled due to too soft aluminium material. Splines look bad, but work so far.

Bottom Line:   
Disappointed for short life of original bearings and hub axle. Spare axle was found from import dealer, however axle was a little different compared to original (chinese manufacturers practical joke?). Workshop lathe did the job and now hub is waiting for rebuild with new ceramic bearings.

Meanwhile, I'm enjoying Mavic's Crossmax SLR rear wheel with ceramic rim. A lot better than am classic!
