    Strengths:    Light, smoothest I've ever ridden.
    Inexpensive compared to their peers.
    Appealing. Freehub wears well.

    Weaknesses:    Pawl engagement could be better.

    Bottom Line:   
    Pulse quickening ride quality. I just can't seem to find a better hub than the Dura Ace 7700 series.

    Strengths:    Smooth, quiet, durable, and light.
    Easy to service.
    Wheel requires less dish than comparable Campagnolo freehub.

    Weaknesses:    None

    Bottom Line:   
    I have three pairs of wheels built on these hubs. I have never had any problem with them after many thousands of miles. These hubs seem like they will last forever with proper maintenence. Some people don't like the grease they come with, but they are easy to take apart and rebuild with whatever lube you prefer. The titanium freehub is light and extremely wear-resistant. Aluminum freehubs on other brands, Even the newer 10 speed Dura Ace, get all chewed up from the cassette cogs. Also, this rear hub runs very quietly. When coasting, my bike is totally silent. All I hear is the breeze and the hiss of my tires on the pavement. I hate the clatter that the pawls in Campy, Hugi, and most other rear hubs make when freewheeling. These are excellent hubs.

    Strengths:    tough as nails, brand name, rebuildable, tough races.

    Weaknesses:    price, but hey.... also, the seals on the 8speed (i have last year of 8speed d.a.) are not impressive. low drag though.

    Bottom Line:   
    shimano factory grease is worthless. put some Slick50 teflon /lithium in these babies and roll till you croak. Or in rainy climates, Lubrimatic marine/auto grease. it rules. These have held up to radial aero wheels, bunny hops, potholes, crashes, dogs, and i'm fixing to biuld a new wheel on this front hub! unbelievable, the races are like new! the cones show a hair of wear, but no big deal, just replace teh bbs. I dock it one star for the seals, but hey its pro quality for less than Kris King.

    Strengths:    Its light, high polished, and spins forever.

    Weaknesses:    No high tech gizmos to brag about.

    Bottom Line:   
    These hubs are great. I got mine laced radially to a set of sun rims by Winkle Wheel. They look great and have held up nicely. Every once in a while I have to renew that high polish with a scrub or two. Outside of that they are maitenance free.
