    Don't look at Nukeproof.
    Their subaxle does not support the interface between the freehub and the shell causing a twist in the pawls under heavy power. This makes some of them misengage, then too much force through only a few pawls which then shatter.

    If Nukeproof had not been a dick to me on the customer support side of things I would not go out of my way *****ing about them.

    So lousy product backed up by lousy customer support.

    The design I am currently very interested in is the high engagment 150mm hub soon to be released by superstar. 120 engagment points on a DH hub at a cheap price =-)

    no idea about your frame though.

    if it is 135 the hope pro2 is a stunning piece of kit, their 150 is spaced weird though.


    I should add that the method of faliure on the nukeproof is an educated guess. 3 sets of pawls blown in a matter of weeks. Every time i phoned them up 'wow we have never had any pawls fail before' believed them first time, yet on the third time, when Iknow I have had them fail twice I do a bit of research, it is a common problem. bastards

    You are not just paying for bling with CK, the hubs design is stunning.

    Taking mine apart it is the complete opposite of the Pro 2.

    The pro2 is a simple design executed perfectly, the CK is so so over-engineered it is amazing.

    I have heard good things about the Hadely from the USA crowd, but they are not supposed to be sealed that well so would not trust over here.
