Was thinking of building a new pair of light general road wheels using Am Classic hubs.
My question is are they up to general riding of say 6000 miles a year?
The reason I ask is I have read a number of reviews which seem to suggest they are not very well made.
Is this a general conclusion or just a few unlucky users?

they have been through multiple revisions. the earlier versions did have some problems, which are now (probably) fixed. I've got a set, but have yet to put it through a huge number of miles.

I like the narrowed large flange rear and the reduced dish you get.

I have an older (first gen) AC freehub hub that's still going strong.
