Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Chub on a 29er
Built up a front wheel with this hub and Stan Arch rims.
With the large flange, 20mm through axle and light weight I had hoped to build a super stiff strong wheel without the usual weight penalty.
In many ways it is exactly that, although I am still running a larger tire and tube, I'll change to tubeless and a Maxxis Icon when my Ardent wears out, just for the extra weight loss.
The hub is very nicely machined and the bearing run super smooth.
They could have increased the flange width in my opinion and made the rim more centered.
I get a lot of comments on how big it is, but it suits the look of the 29er especially as I have a Alfine on the back.
