Any experience/s with the durability of these hubs? What would be a practical upper weight limit
for this hub?

Thxs.

It says that the hub rides on 6802 bearings, which are really really small for use in a rear hub shell - I would not expect them to last very long.

I built my training wheels with BHS hubs early this year. I can't remember if I used the ultralight or superlight. After about 6-7000 miles and plenty of foul weather, they still spin great. Really good bang for buck light hubs IMO.

I built my UL190/70 with kinlin X19 and sapim cx ray (24h/28h) in january this year. And I have done between 4.000 and 5.000 km on them. At least 2.000 km in the skandinavian winter, and they still spin smooth. I have been around 82-85 kg this year, and the wheels have certainly not been spared.

AFAIK if the bearings get worn out, they are very cheap to replace.

I've got some of the Bitex version of those hubs. One of the ceramic bearings died early on so I replaced with quality steel bearings, which have done well.

BHS uses good quality steel bearings on their hubs. I've a number of BHS hubs, mostly the SL211, which use three 6802s. I've used them for a number of years and I ride a lot. I've had one bearing go bad.

But for an extra 20g or so the SL210s have larger bearings and slightly better flange geomtery.

These are the same as the farsports edhubs no? I think there's some reviews in that gigantic thread.

Not positive if they are the same, however I bought a 11sp. freehub from BHS to upgrade my Ed hub purchased from Farsports. It fit perfect and how has 2k miles on them . I had a bearing start to sound funny (course sounding) lubed all of them and all is good.
