Durable, servicable hubs - White Industries? or what?

As in the heading.

I'm considering buying a set of built but unused wheels with a White rear hub (w 650b Synergies and a SON28). Anybody have any feedback on having used them for long distance riding? Any troubles or negatives?

That's what we bought for the tandem and it has about ten thousand hard-riding but trouble-free miles on it.

The White rear hub is a Speed Racer, if that makes a difference.
