    Weaknesses:    .

    Bottom Line:   
    thought i'd post a follow up since having my hub warrantied right when it was brand new with a defect it has been bomb proof, it has been completely reliable outlived a rimset and is still going strong, it's a great quality hub

    Strengths:    Really nice looking hub. I like the cooling fins. Cartridge bearings. Newer ones are really strong.

    Weaknesses:    I had a soft free wheel and a bad axle when it came on my DaBomb Mindbomb. The guys at Bombshell took care of that for me and it has been trouble free since then. The Cromoly free wheel hub is so nice it can't be compared to the die cast units on the early hubs

    Bottom Line:   
    I think it is a good hub. I have always had excellent service from Bombshell, and once they placed the updated parts in it the hub has worked flawlessly. I don't want to attack anyone, but ripping off the flange? How was the hub laced. I have the 32 hole hub and I always have it 3crossed whenever I replace rims. I don't want to speak for Bombshell, but I am pretty sure that this hub shouldn't be radially spoked. Either way. I'm sorry that people had bad luck with the product. I did too, but Bombshell made it right and it has been working fine for a year of use/abuse with no signs of stopping.

    Strengths:    strong

    Weaknesses:    *hope u didn't get the bad batch*

    Bottom Line:   
    this rear hub has worked very well EXCEPT when i originally got it i blew it out 30 minutes into my first DH run, this royally pissed me off since these aren't exactly cheap. It was warrantied they said they had problems with a batch of them and it was solved i've now been riding them for 4 or 5 months with 0 problems, they have been great. I just hope u dont get one of thier bad batches ;)

    Strengths:    NONE

    Weaknesses:    I got this piece of crap with my daBomb bike from price point. I was peddling standing up when I grenaded it. I couldn't believe it. DON'T BUY one unles you want to buy a new one with in 20 minutes of riding.

    Bottom Line:   
    This piece of crap should give me chillis. Don't even think about wasting your money on it. I'm jut glad it came with the bike and I didn't have to shell out 180 bucks for it...

    Strengths:    Nothing the biggest peace of dog pile i have ever used, do not buy be aware, i have a knot the size of a golf ball on my ankle do to this Hub!!

    Weaknesses:    Well for starters the flange broke,you know the one that is huge and suppost to be super beefy yeah right!!! Then the freebody broke and i had a new one put in under warranty, two days later the freebody snapped completley off. when i called to see if i could get a new freebody the guy told me that i was 1of4 people who had broken the freebodies, but he sad that if he were to give me another one it would do the same thing and break!!! what kind of bull shizniz is that nice come back for your $190.00 hub. he offered to fix it but i would have to leave my bike for 3 hours for a job that would take anybody, oh i don't know 5 minutes tops. then i asked him if i could just get the freebody and do it myself and he told me, no because they were to busy, busy with what? with product this crapy i don't see who would by this cheap kmart, china man, horses monkey baboons but, anyway!!One Thing and One Thing For Sure PRECISSION BILLET MY Ash!!!

    Bottom Line:
