Shimano Deore XT HT-M770 Rear Hub -- Don't Buy
 
Failed after about 2500 miles. Rebuilt and failed again in another 2000.

What do you mean failed? The cones went bad?

No. The first time, I was changing my cassette and while holding on to the cassette body I spun the wheel but the cassette body didn't freewheel. It didn't do it all of the time but I've ridden a fixie and didn't want my freewheel to become a fixie unexpectedly. So, I replaced the cassette body with a new one. After about 2000 more miles the cassette body started seizing up. I was unable to determine why it seized.
