Strengths:    Cheap

Weaknesses:    Freehub broke, nearly taking my knee with it

Bottom Line:   
This hub came stock on my 2011 Trek Rumblefish...I don't have anywhere near as many miles on it as I'd like and it hasn't seen too much heavy abuse. Out of nowhere on my last ride the freehub decided to let loose while climbing a rocky technical uphill and I ended up smashing my knee quite nicely...I ended up having to walk (slowly) back to the truck. I've been riding for 30+ years and I've never blown a freewheel/freehub like that (I've had them get noisy, but this went out with no warning) - don't think I'd recommend it unless you weigh 90 lbs and are putting it on a cruiser bike...

Strengths:    Cost
29er specific rear hub

Weaknesses:    bland graphics

Bottom Line:   
I had this rear hub built up to a WTB Frequency i23. It has pretty quick engagement, I have yet to notice any slip or anything. It has just enough pawl noise that you can hear it, but it isn't overly loud like some of the high end hubs out there. So far it is holding up great to my 220lb frame.
