Strengths:    Rock solid user friendly design, no cheap plastic or nylon parts, holds up well on both rough streets and trails

Weaknesses:    Very loud when coasting - but who's listening? I don't sneak up on anyone, trust me.

Bottom Line:   
This hub is solid - I've put about 200 miles on it in the last 2 weeks and I haven't noticed anything wrong. The streets here in DE are rough, but this hub is so large and strong that I haven't noticed. It's loud, but no one cares how loud your bike is. I gave it 4 chilis overall because of the noise, but that's it.

Strengths:    This is a very strong hub. it has awesome engagement and it has a nice sound to it. Its is better than any of those deore hubs.

Weaknesses:    When i got it the bearings were pretty worn and pitted. Also on the end there is an end cap that has to be removed so you can service the inside of the hub. This can be a pain in to take off. It also has BALL bearings, not sealed cartridge bearings. Its not a standard 6 hole disc.

Bottom Line:   
If you can find a cheap one then its a really good deal. I modified mine to a cartridge bearings and it is even better than before.
