    Anthem X 29 stock rear hubs...still DT Swiss 350?

    Last year the Anthem 29er featured a rear DT Swiss 350 hub and this year 2012 the rear hub is a Giant Tracker. Just wondering if anyone know is this new hub from Giant might be just a rebranded 350?

    I don't know if they are rebranded 350s, but the engagement is so bad on my P-XC2 (the worst I've ever seen) that I ended up ordering new wheels even though I quite like the build and rims (work great tubeless with Bontrager strips).

    The hubs on the '12s sound nothing like 'heavy duty' hubs ala DT, CK, etc.

    I only have 220 miles on mine, weight 200 lbs and have a history of shredding shimano freewheels in months and am pretty sure mine are already going.

    Will eventually replace them with a CK/carbon rim set up heavily discussed in the 29er component section. Just waiting to hear more reviews regarding the carbon rim durability before placing an order.
