    Ringle Abbah DH hub

    Hey, I've got the chance to get my hands on a brand new Sun Ringle Abbah DH/Lawwill hub for about $120. I need a 12x150 for my new bike, and right now this seems pretty good. I can't afford a King, heard DT's dont have alot of engagement points.
    And from what I've heard Ringles are really loud which is a plus. So you guys have any thoughts on this hub?

    Thanks

    Sun Ringle is a good quality hub 120 bucks isn't bad!


    on a side note.... DT swiss DO have alot of engagement points, most standard hubs use a pawl system (including the sun ringle) which have on avg 3 teeth, one of these teeth engages at a time, the DT swiss uses a ring drive system, 32 engagement points, all the engagement points lock simultaneously. i own a DT sWiss Hugi FR hub (32 point engagement), and a Industry Nine (120 point engagement), And a Sun Ringle law, i gotta say when your on the bike there's no real noticable difference .... to me anyways and yes the sunringle sounds more bad ass than the other ones

    I was reading a bunch of reviews of the DT 440 and alot of them said good hub, except the lack of engagement points. Hmm?

    I would go for a hope hub over a ringle they just have not had a reliable history

    I just got a Sun Abahh SOS rear hub built up and dam!, It Rocks!. Built like a bricksh!t, loud as a jet fighter and stiff as all hell. I say go for the ringle hubs, they wont let you down

    Had a Sun Ringle Abbah DH/Lawwill hub a couple seasons ago. 36 engagment points were decent along w/ a beefy construction. Negative - doing a hill climb and it felt like my tire was spinning in mud. Found out the internal ring gear spun inside the hub shell. Hayes / Ringle was nice enough to warranty the hub because of the nature of the failure. For those that say this hub is loud you need to lube / service your hub.

    They are as loud as any hope hub. I've got one on my bike and it's okay, but I wouldn't say they are as good as a hope pro 2. Just make sure you can get parts for it if it happens to break. There are some videos of silly hub sounds on youtube if you want a comparison.
    IMO I love loud hubs, slow riders move over when they hear my hub.

    i was looking into the hope pro II, but I cant stand how close the flanges are. its like a 135mm, but spaced to fit a 150mm. doesnt that beat the purpose of a 150mm rear end.?


    And any comments about what I mentioned above about the DT 440?
