    Just curious what everyone's rear hubs are. Mine is some no-name brand that I can already feel starting to die. I'm hoping to get a Hope when that happens :)

    Well I have a deor right now on my crappy not trials full suspension bike I am riding for trials right now...
    But I plan on putting a king hub on my bike when I get it...

    King is amazing. You will buy it once, and always have a fantastic hub.

    I had a Deore. Worked for a while when I was learning. Once I went to the king, I will never go back. My problem now, is I'll always replace any of my hubs with king DOH$$$!

    Some people I have run into knock Chris King, but I've had mine for a few years now and love it. At first it kept loosening up on me, but that was my own fault for not adjusting it right! No problems since that (over 1 1/2 years ago). King! :bigthumb:

    King. Get the HD version with stainless freehub and you'll be set. Never gets loose and you'd have to be a 350 lb monster to break it.

    Reliable, well built, low engagement Hope XC. Replaced my Lx freehub body on shimano XT.

    And all the "brilliant" Hope service that comes with it, i haven't had to send my hub off yet, but if i ever do im sure they'll do a top job and it'll all be free-ish!
