    Sun Ringle rear hub reliability?

    B4 purchasing an unused 650b DL31/Sun Ringle wheelset, I'd like to get some input. I've seen a few older reviews. Pretty bad, but maybe there has been improvements. I'm waiting to find out the hub model. May be Dirty Flea.

    I currently run Pacenti's P35 with XT rear hub, no name front hub. Just trying to get quicker engagement, lighter and easier tubeless bead mounting.

    TIA

    Dirty Flea is made by Chosen, same manufacturer who makes Stans ZTR 3.30 hubs. They are very similar is design and function, as well as reliability. Engagement is 30 poe and I would give them a C for reliability. Decent but I had to replace bearings after one season of riding in the rear hub.

    BTW-The DL31 has the same tubeless bead shape as the P35 rim, they are designed to work best with Tubeless Ready tires as opposed to standard tires like the Stans rims.
