    SRAM 506 hubs

    Looking at a Sram 506 Hub/Velocity P35 wheelset, but I have no idea if the hubs are decent.
    Has anyone used these??

    I'm pretty sure they are similar to a deore hub. they use a cup and cone style bearing, not a cartridge bearing.

    I haven't used them myself so I can't comment on the long term durability. I would image with some periodic maintenance they should be fine.

    Hope this helps.

    I guess another thing I'm wondering (and they may be too new to get an answer on this
    ), but any idea if their freehubs are more clyde friendly than deore level freehubs?
