    Strengths:    Nice pinky red. Sealed bearings. Roll smoothly but....

    Weaknesses:    When clamped in the frame the wheels stopped turning!! Bearings not seated dep enough and took hours of filing and scraping to get them to work, but since have been great. Freehub snapped in under one month but OK since. Perhaps just a Friday pair?

    Bottom Line:   
    Well despite the problems above the wheels have taken a year of heavy labour admirably. I like them now.
    I've rated them pretending the problems never happened as probably just one offs having no problem for 11 months

    Strengths:    Nice lookers, roll smooth

    Weaknesses:    If you can put up with people asking who DDG are, heavy skewers

    Bottom Line:   
    I have been using these hubs now for almost a year and they are still rolling as smoothly as when I got them, even though I've never serviced them. Mine are in XTR grey, which is some hardwearing finish so they still look good, too. Because of the large flanges, you can build a pretty stiff wheel and they're pretty light, too. An excellent choice for XC trail riders and a good choice if you want to keep you machine lightweight, though racers can find lighter. good value for money because a lot of more expensive products are re-labelled DDG stuff.

    Wheeltech disc hubs axle conversion?

    Hey there I'm wondering if I can convert my Wheeltech Disc hubs from a 9x100mm qr to 9x100mm thru-bolt and a 10x135mm qr to 10x135mm thru-bolt? I can't find any information on wheeltech hubs anywhere short of calling up Rocky Mtn. and asking them directly. Thanks for any help!Read More »

    Best MTB disc hubs for cyclocross?

    Guys, what are the best MTB disc hubs for cyclocross use (not singletrack). I want to run Avis BB7 ROAD brakes with 6 bolt 160mm rotors (also is it possible to use the centerlock Shimano hubs - or are 6 bolt versions required)? I am a fairly heavy guy 220# and don't want to be rebuilding the hub ... Read More »

    High flange disc hubs

    I'm a little put off by a couple of wheelsets I've built with lightweight 29" rims and XT 785 hubs, They really doesn't get stiff enough laterally. Now, I could use thicker spokes or fewer spoke crossings, but I've preached enough around here about why I don't want to use too thick spokes, and as th ... Read More »
