    I can't say that I've ever heard of Mount hubs; neither has Google.

    In google type in "BMX Rims Mount Hubs" and click on the hellbent site, in the site go to products and services and go to "hubsets", My hubs are similar to the black ones they have, excepet mine are annodized blue, and have the logo.

    They are clones of Suzue hubs. And, no, they're not.

    A couple of reviews I found said they were right up there with demolition and dk. How they look has nothing to do with how they perform.

    They are a generic copy of a fairly high quality hub. Odds are good that the axle that comes with it is cheap and poorly made and the bearings in the hub are probably sub par. It may even come from the same factory as the 'name brand' hub, but with lower grade trimout parts on it.

    If the hub is not sealed then that is the main thing to look for (loose ball bearings).

    If it is loose ball, then no matter what brand it is, it is not something that will last you a long time. The value you get from a name brand hub is often reflected by the concept that you can get high quality replacement parts and often call someone or email the company from their website.

    Like www.huffybmx.com - www.mountbmx.com doesn't exist. No help, no service... highly questionable when a company doesn't stand behind their product.

    They're actually DK axles, i know because i bought and installed them myself, i also switched out the bearings so i don't have to worry about those either

    You have always been able to get Huffy's at Wal-Mart... and if you say again what frame you have, it can be confirmed or denied that it comes from Wal-Mart.

    How many times did you have to true them over those 3 years? Because if it wasn't to many times then I should think about getting them once my Alex Tripple walls are trash(that will hopefully and probably not be for some time now). I'm not that good with truing my own wheels yet so I have to bring them to the shop whenever I need them trued. Witch is very spendy. So I want the strongest rims out there(and I don't care about weight). Would suggest the Primo rims? I ride dirt park and street.

    I trued the back wheel four or five times, and the front wheel two or three times. I was running Odyssey Hazard hubs and generic spokes with it.
