    Hubs on 2006 Specialized SX Trail II and Demo 8 II

    Does anyone know the quality of front and especially rear hub on 06 Specialized freeride bikes? The only info their website provides is:

    FRONT HUB Specialized disc, 36 hole, high/low flange, 20mm thru axle
    REAR HUB Specialized disc, high/low flange, 10mm bolt-on, 36 hole

    They are probably some Taiwanese Specialized branded OEM hubs? Seems to me that especially the rear hub may be a bit of a let down on the more expensive SX Trail and Demo models? There are times when you don't want your freewheel to skip... or bearings to develop play on your week-long bikepark holiday..

    I'm on my second bike now (06 Enduro Elite) with these hubs, and never had a single issue with them. Keep em greased and you should be fine.
