    Strengths:    Just Plain Solid, Fairly Light

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    Been using this hub for the past 7 years now and I have not appreciated its being tough and loyal. Hub came with the bike, Kona Kaboom, and this is the only original part remaining that still works. I recently laced it with my old Sun 0 Degree XC rim with DT spokes. Hub has been tested through different rocky trails here in the East Coast and long road ride during its first 3 years. Bottom line is...this hub is tough, silky smooth, and worry free light and simple.

    Strengths:    Light weight, durable

    Weaknesses:    no quick change cog arraingement like Chris King or Stealth hubs, but I'm not complaining too much

    Bottom Line:   
    I have two wheelsets using these hubs (one 28H set w/ Ti spokes and one 32H set w/ DT Revolution spokes). Both have performed beautifully. I bought my first set used (28H) and have only recently had to replace the rim (spokes pulling through after many years of hard riding) and the hubs are still smooth. The previous owner complained of bearing binding problems and replaced the axles/bearings to try to alieviate the problem. I've never had any issues with them, so when I wanted an extra wheelset for 24 hr racing last year, I built up a new set of Spot hubs and have been equally as pleased.

    Strengths:    Light weight and very easy to service. The biggest moron can adjust them.

    Weaknesses:    Not a sinle one.

    Bottom Line:   
    This is hands down the best ss hub money can buy. There are other companies out ther, Paul and Surly, who make good hubs but the quality and workmanship in these is something to marvel at. They come apart easier than any hub I have ever worked on. Sealed cartridge bearings make it even more hassel free. If you are looking for a good hub, this is it.

    Standard Front hubs with OS28 fork.

    How does this work out? Do you loose stiffness? Does it work? I have some DT Swiss 240 hubs I want to build up and was wondering how it would work with the Specialized OS fork interface? Thanks!Read More »

    weight differences in Hope hubs? SS and standard

    Changing my wheelset to a setup with a lighter rim that is laced to a SS hub. Putting 8 gears on it after some machining. The wheelset it's replacing has a standard Hope hub (135/disc). Just wondering if anyone has weight on hubs before they're laced up. Shouldn't be much difference at all thoug ... Read More »

    Looking for a truing stand that works with non-standard hubs.

    I am in need of a truing stand but have a bunch of different types of hubs on the bikes. I have standard QR hubs, 20mm TA front, 150mm/12mm TA rear, 135mm/10mm Saint Axle rear. The standard QR is obviously fine with any stand, and I can get the problem solvers QR adapter for 20mm front. Th ... Read More »
