    Strengths:    Solid, easily serviced anywhere. Weight very reasonable for a 32-spoke set-up.

    Weaknesses:    None so far- maybe no bling if you care about that sort of thing.

    Bottom Line:   
    Got these hubs laced to Mavic Open Pro's for all-around riding. Well-pleased so far (not 1000m yet). Good ride. Stable without being too stiff.

    Strengths:    Worked fine when it was in one piece.

    Weaknesses:    Didn't stay in one piece.

    Bottom Line:   
    My ultegra rear hub was fine until it cracked and broke in half. I called Shimano and they didn't care -- said it was past the 2 year warrantee (about 4 yrs old). I understand this is rare, but not too impressive performance or response.
