Submitted by Bones a Cross Country Rider from Kansas City

Date Reviewed: November 19, 2001

Strengths:    Good, solid and simple. Has worked with little maintenance over five years

Weaknesses:    Must be taken apart regularly for cleaning and lubrication or it won't engage properly

Bottom Line:   
One of the prettiest hubs out there. But that doesn't really mean anything. Easy to service and reliable. You MUST clean and lub regularly though.

Submitted by Conrad Smith a Cross Country Rider from New Zealand

Date Reviewed: June 16, 2001

Strengths:    Sealed bearings (4 in rear hub), easily disasembled to clean and oil, strong design.

Weaknesses:    Heavy compared to the new products. No colour options.
Freehub needs oiling, no grease or the pawls stick.Not a hassle as two allen keys and the hub comes apart.


Bottom Line:   
A good hub set that requires a bit of servicing in the rear hub free wheel to keep it running freely. Otherwise a good product that is strong for us heavier guys.(90+kg)
Five for value front & rear for $150 NZ
Four maintance on the rear hub.Much easier than servicing an XTR though.

Submitted by Walt Wehner a Cross-Country Rider from Los Alamos, NM

Date Reviewed: May 28, 1999

Strengths:    
Was on sale, sealed well, easy to work on.


Weaknesses:    
Breaks easily, loud


Bottom Line:   
This hub sucks. The pawls don't engage properly a lot of the time, and so you have to constantly take it apart and fix them. Also, I managed to break 2 pawls entirely pedal-kicking up over some rocks. Not a good product by any stretch of the imagination. Service wasn't great either - they questioned whether I really had a WC hub and got quite huffy when I asked if the pawls broke often.
