Looking at moving to these after some issues with 240s. Any reviews out there yet?

Hows the engagement? Ive seen 7deg and 9. Any thoughts on drag or lack thereof in the freehub and bearings in general?

it's too early to tell how the freehub will hold up. first time xtr has stepped away from titanium but the new spline design should mitigate gouging issues

as far as bearings. XTR is the best hub out there....period...full stop

you have a highly polished race and much MUCH larger bearings. older xtr hubs were good for around 10k miles if you set tension correctly when you relubed every year or two. make sure you get a container of dura ace grease for yearly or bi yearly maintence.

ps that dura ace grease can extend the life of i9 and 240 bearings if you pop the seal & pack the snot out of them before install
