i have seen a fair bit of chat about the newer alloy axel XT hubs not being as good as the older ones and the thin steel free hub body breaking up (i have seen a photo of this some where on the net). can we put this one to bed and get the real low on the M770 hub VS the older near impossible to find hub?
oh, i;m planning to have a set build up for a long tour and would like to get some closure on the issue assuming this rid one?
also i'm not too keen on the lower speck hubs as i think they don;t have the coated ball races and also don;t have the same level of sealing against the elements.
thanks d :-)
