Strengths:    Looks good

Weaknesses:    Freehub, cheap bearings, no easy changable endcaps 135-142

Bottom Line:   
The needle bearing in the freehub body has no sealing. If you dont liberally grease all parts inside the freehub before your First ride, it will fall apart after the first drops of rain.
Changing from 135 to 142 is a pain. You have to change the axle, not only the end caps.

The old Demon hubs and the Charger Comp hubs on my other bikes are bad too, but not that bad.

Strengths:    ummm.... it might be better than having no hub???

Weaknesses:    Falls apart

Bottom Line:   
I rode this hub about 10 times. I ride very hard but never had a problem with any other hub. It starting making a grinding type noise then I noticed the casset was loose. I took the wheel off and pieces started falling apart. It messed up the casset a bit too. I thought this was a freak thing so I started looking for another one to replace it. I decided to check some reviews and found it was not a one time thing. I agree with the rest of the reviews before mine and they all sound like a similar problem to mine. If you are reading these reviews and thinking about buying this hub, just buy something else.

Strengths:    when it works, it works fine

Weaknesses:    less than 30 rides in and the freehub body stopped working and i couldn't pedal. it would kick in and out. LBS took it out, nothing worn or broken, cleaned it up and put it back together and it worked for a day before breaking again. serviced again, and after 1 ride is still working, but i'm looking for a replacement asap. very annoyed because it's not covered under warranty. avoid.

Bottom Line:   
don't buy. expensive, hard to service, parts hard to find, and unreliable - there are many better hubs out there. the only reason i had it is because it came with the bike, and other than the saddle it's the first thing getting swapped out.

Strengths:    It looks nice...The end

Weaknesses:    very weak metal on free-body

Bottom Line:   
This rear hub has totally failed 2 times,the first after only 400km and then again after 1200km.

The first time the internal's of the free hub body fell to bits destroying my cassette in the process.

The second time the cassette actually cut into the free hub body it's self causing both to be discarded.

Really hard to say if the hub is at fault or the high torque from shifting under load with the Hammerschmidt cranks.

A real hassle though, considering the hud freehub body costs $170.00 NZD and $60.00 odd for a cassette.
