    Sun Ringlé DH freehub, strong enough for a tandem ?

    I'm thinking of building this hub in a tandem:

    But I'm wondering if the freehub system is up to the task ?

    Do you know if your team is hard on hubs? Alex/Tandemnut has sold many an off-road tandem with White Industries hubs. There hasn't been much issue with regard to reliability, however we regularly busted WI rear hubs every six months.

    Conversely, we've never (knock on wood) folded a cassette, which many other teams have done over the years.

    I am not sure about how durable the drive will be, but it does look pretty tough.

    The hub is a rippin deal, but can I ask, what frame is this going in?

    I ask on account of how wide the entire rear end will and will there be heal clearance for the stoker, or are you planning to running some type of super wide crankset?
