    Shimano Centerlock vs. Six Bolt Hubs

    Thinking about a new wheelset...

    The Shimano website doesn't mention a part number but I've seen it our there (Maybe M756). What, if any, are the Pros and Cons?
    I'm not broke but you can see the cracks.

    Rick’s Law Of Biking...
    At least two uphills are required for every downhill.

    Truth...
    I work to survive, I play to live.

    Mind, Body, Spirit...,which one is keeping you from getting better?

    Both work well, center lock is faster to use, but how often are you removing and installing discs.

    The only real advantage to 6 bolts is that they're more popular, especially when running non-shimano brakes.

    If you get a centerlock hub, you can always buy the DT-Swiss adapters and run other rotors.

    If you mess up your inner race on shimano hubs the whole thing is toast on the 965 hubs, spend the extra $ get a sealed hub and be done with it, 6 bolt is fine centerlock is way easier but cup and cone means maintenance, g/l!
