    Shimano XT Disc M765 Rear Hub vs. DMR Revolver Rear

    I'm building up a DT Swiss Ex 5.1d rim with Wheelsmith butted spokes.
    I'm having trouble deciding between the two as they are similar in price. Would love to hear some opinions from anyone with experience with these hubs. This would be going on my 4" trailbike for agressive xc.
    Thanks in advance

    I'd recommend the Revolver. The DMR has cartridge bearings which generally require less maintenance. I understand that early versions of the freehub body had some longevity issues, but DMR have sorted these out. I've been running a Revolver laced to a Mavic D321 for around 10 months for downhill and urban riding and it's still going strong. The freehub body spins the same as it did when I fitted it (< link) and still has zero lateral play. Freehub, bearings and axle are all easy and inexpensive to replace on the DMR.
    The DMR also has the added benefit of an internally threaded bolt-on axle which helps to stiffen up the rear of the bike. The freehub has quite a loud, distinctive 'click' when you're coasting.
