Strengths:    Smooth, rebuild able, SRAM reputation for standing behind their product.

Weaknesses:    Engagement is a little slow, feels like you standard Shimano hub but for the money its very acceptable.

Bottom Line:   
Did not have the cash to spend on my hub of choice (king) for my commuter and really did not see a need for instant engagement anyways on such a bike so decided to try out the SRAM hubs. I know SRAM will stand behind their product better than anyone, and I wanted a cartridge bearing hub. I have used Shimano hubs of all levels but XTR and even though the bearings are durable, I have blown up about 5 freehub bodies, not that I am particularly strong, I just do a lot of granny granny climbs filled with rocks and roots so a lot of power surges. I know I will not see those conditions on the cargo bike but I have carried close to 200lbs on it up a steep (for that kind of load) hill running a 22-36 so this hub does see a good bit of torque.

So far so good, it is still smooth and even in sub zero temps the freehub works perfect. Hopefully in a couple years I can still say the same. Great bang for the buck.

Trick to adjust X-7 RD on Goblin?

I put together the new bike last night. It took me a little while to get the front brake not to rub. Other than that, everything looked pretty good. I am having some issues getting the RD dialed in, and admittedly, have very little experience with this as I guess I have been lucky in the past and ... Read More »

Float X on Mach 5.7: lack of boost valve a problem?

Will the Mach 5.7 not work well with the new Fox Float X shock? I was thinking of trying one out then read that it does not have the boost valve and includes less bottom-out resistance. Since some people are already complaining about shock bottoming and the 5.7 easily uses all of its travel, would ... Read More »

Looking to borrow a 7.0 x 2.0 rear shock for a test

Anyone in the Denver area have a 7.0 x 2.0 rear shock I could borrow for a week or so?
