    Strengths:    Durability

    Weaknesses:    incapatibility with other models

    Bottom Line:   
    7700 D/A Hubs have never given any problem. I have five bikes with D/A equipment and just one bottom bracket has failed.

    Strengths:    light

    Weaknesses:    bearing quality is crumby. not any better than ultegra or even 105.

    Bottom Line:   
    this hub is junk. save the money and get the ultegra. the DA is lightweight, but the bearing quality is sh*t. even with fresh bearings and grease, these things grind and make a lot of noise. i used to own an older 8 speed freelhub that was 3x as smooth as the newer 9 speed trash.

    Strengths:    Nice look, front hub is great.

    Weaknesses:    As above and the price.

    Bottom Line:   
    Top of the line. Do they preform this way? No. The back hub has been grinding since I've used them I bought them slightly used, 1000km. Took them to the shop and found out there is a divit/wear starting to form in the interior of the hub, I would assume it was caused by the fact that the bearing aren't sealed. I'm really disapointed by this considering they are supposed to be top of the line. My Rolf comps were a much better set-up. And to replace the hub? I can get a full set of mavic cosmos' for only $100 more.
