Strengths:    Weight, Bling

Weaknesses:    Rear mechanism durability

Bottom Line:   
I built up a set of wheels with these for my Ragley mmmbop. The front has been problem free, but I have had problems with broken pawls in the rear hub. Under climbing load the hub will suddenly give way and make a loud pop. Disassemble the hub and there are shards of metal floating in the grease which have sheared off of the front edge of the pawls. I've gone through two sets of pawls/springs this way. I weigh in at about 220 lbs., so I guess I put out too much torque for this mechanism. Never had a problem with much cheaper equipment, though. I guess I'll be rebuilding the wheel with something else. Bummer.

I just watched this video and I was figuring out how I could use something like it in my life. I wouldn't need it to charge my phone or ipod or whatever, but I thought it could be really useful if bikepacking, to charge my lights during the day so I could go on longer rides without having to worry a ...
