    GT Force Carbon Expert 2014 - rear hub toast after 2 months!

    Hi,

    My rear hub has gone after just a few rides. A couple of pawls have chipped and won't engage. Granted that the OEM All Terra hub isnīt the best on the planet, but I would expect it to last a little longer!

    Anyway, my shop contacted the GT importer, but they can't seem to get spare pawls and have offered me a brand new Formula hub and a bit of cash to rebuild the wheel. Has anyone experienced a similar issue? Does anyone know who makes these All Terra Tall Flange Alloy Hubs (the blue-gray ones on this bike https://www.bike24.com/p262445.html) and/or where I could find compatible pawls?

    Many thanks, L.

    I would take the money sell the hub and put in a better hub like DT340.

    Cheers. To be honest, thatīs the long-term plan, but probably with Hope hubs ;-)

    Hi,

    I had the same problem with the rear hub. That issue is "normal", since that hubs are crap. After that problems (world overall) GT decided not to continue with that hubs.

    I had mine replaced from GT, by a Formula Hub as well.

    Yep, same here. Also happened to a mate who had exact same expert force x. Known problem. Also warrantied. Unfortunate mine happened as I was riding up one of the steep climbs at slick rock in Moab. Very loud and very painful.
