Strengths:    Buttery bearings, light weight. Beautifully manufactured.

Weaknesses:    Disc brake alignment difficulty

Bottom Line:   
First things first: this is a lovely hub. Smooth, solid, excellent finish.

But I had problems getting the disc rotor and caliper positioned right. Ended up having to put a washer in between the hub and the non-drive fork end just to get it to stop rubbing against the outside of the caliper body. It works great now, but I'd rather not have to bodge it like that.

Would be 5 chilis --stright up -- without that problem.
