Strength:

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

Weakness:

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

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.

These hubs are still running smooth after three plus years. Never grease the paws in the titanium cassette body, always use a good oil.

Strength:

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

Weakness:

Breaks easily, loud

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.

Conrad Smith   Cross Country Rider [Jun 16, 2001]
Strength:

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

Weakness:

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.

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.

Similar Products Used: LX, XT, other cheap stuff.
