I broke the free hub pawls clean off on my ride today, not an especially hard effort but never the less a surprise when it happened!
They are a un-branded Taiwanese wheel set and aside from the hubs & spokes I think the carbon rim is OK, the bare wheel set weighed 1380g which isn't too bad i don't think considering the price. I have been offered a replacement free hub which I'll take but I don't really trust the hubs now and the spokes look a little suspicious...
So, I'm after suggestions on what hubs to go for. They are my training wheels although I'd like something light if possible (I don't mind a little maintenance...) because I enjoy using well made components. I've been looking at Chris King's and they look fantastic, I can change my axles if I upgrade my forks and I can use 'fun bolts' on the back. But what else is about that I should consider?http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=2039
I'm after a 6 bolt disc mount.
P.s. I've ruled out DT 240 or 190 hubs because I think they are too plain.
