THE PAUL HUB IS BEAUTIFUL.MINE LOOKS LIKE A GOLD OIL DRUM.IT'S VERY SMOOTH,SUPER STIFF,AND EASYLY MAINTAINED.MINE SQUEEKED AFTER A FEW MONTHS BUT I LUBBED IT ONCE AND IT HAS NEVER SQUEEKED AGAIN.IT'S WELL WORTH THE MONEY.

Strength:

good bearings
excellent machining
adjustable
countersunk spoke holes

Weakness:

ti axle bolts wear out

a good hub. monstrous axle, reasonable weight, spoke heads fit snugly in the spoke holes, nice machining, smooth. but the axle bolts tend to become rounded out. they shoulda used stainless bolts, not ti. if you have the same problem, you can take an old axle from a cheap shimano hub and thread it thru the middle of the paul axle, it fits just right and allows you to use a qr.

Strength:

light, smooooth beyond description

Weakness:

seems to loosen easily,
too smooth for mortals?

I pretty much agree with everything else that has been posted here. smooth, stiff and well built. however, mine seem to loosen very easily. about a month of moderate riding, and twice it has loosened up beyond what i expect, even from a new hub

Strength:

super light, super smooth, super cool.

Weakness:

hmm... too cool?

these hubs came standard on my bianchi boss. these are truely the best hubs around. the W.O.R.D hub (wacky one-speed rear device) is also truely perfect. there isnt much difference though... pretty much the same because 1 speed doesnt need a freewheel! anyway, these hubs are great. i've been riding them for several months now, every day. a simple adjustment here and there, and they're perfect. light weight (lighter than spots). you'll love these hubs.

The Paul front hub that came on my Bianchi Boss made a
strange noise at first, but with a little adjustment and
an occasional lube voila! The rear W.O.R.D. hub should
stand for wonderful one speed rear device. If your
entertaining the idea of going 1 speed I'm not too sure
you can do better. Tried the old style canti's ...eh
you could do better.

VERY NICE, AS WELL MADE AND RELIABLE AS ANY HUB CAN BE. I RETURNED IT TO PAUL'S FOR MAINTENENCE AND RECEIVED PROMPT AND REASONABLY PRICED SERVICE FOR NEW BEARINGS, WHICH BY THE WAY AS YOU CAN SEE BELOW ARE SMOOTH FROM DAY 1 ON. (JUST DON'T OVERTIGHTEN EM AND THEN GO SLOPPING THRU A SEASON A MUD)

I love my fhud DDT. It is very stiff and very burly and actually lighter than my older XT. The axle is huge (25mm) and it even bolts on to the fork. Get this hub it is stout. I am currently switching this wheel to my hard tail and puting a Hope with a disk brake on the front of my FS/DH bike.

This hub is the most cherished part on my bike. Paul makes the most beautiful bike components in the world. This hub is so smooth. I repeat, soooooo smooooth. It's damn sturdy too. I don't have much else to say except exellent machining and that it's the coolest thing in the world of bikes. 5 peppas for sure!
