    WTB Momentum Hubs??

    Hey does anyone have any info on this hub? Really nice looking, bearings feel really smooth, I recently picked it up at my LBS for a really good price but haven't been able to find much info. Most momentum hubs I've found have grease ports and have low flanges and are non-disc, this particular hub has large flanges (60mm) with a disc mount. I'm pretty sure the bearings are sealed and they spin smooth, should I lace this up? Has anyone ridden these? Are they garbage? I purchased it for $14 brand new with the original price sticker of $79.99 still attached. Let me know, thanks guys.

    They look good to me. But like you I have 0 experience with that exact model hub. I know the older GG (Grease Guard) ones were great. I'd run it.... $14 WTH?

    WTB used the "Momentum" name on some Formula made hubs for a while, looks like this is one. Nothing special but a front hub is simply an axle, bearings, and a shell...so it is $14 well spent.

    Thanks

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. They're sealed bearing so what could go wrong? I really like the large flanges without the cut outs...really classic looking almost like a phil hub. It weighs in at 240g so it's a bit lighter than an XT front hub. As long as the bearings last a couple years I think I'll be happy, I live in so cal so wet weather riding isn't an issue hopefully that will allow some longevity. Thanks

    Thanks Guys

    Perfect, I've had a WTB wheelset in the past and had no issues. They were a bit heavy but the hubs were smooth and seemed to roll forever. I'll go ahead and lace it up and see how she performs. Any idea of what year these were produced? Early 2000's? Thanks again for all the info guys.
