    Syncros Hub?

    Hey. Do you think that upgrading from an XT hub to a Syncros DH rear hub would be good? Would it be better for DH?
    Just a quick answer would be good.
    Thanks,
    cummings

    In my opinion yes, the syncros has four really big pawls and a total of six cartridge bearings with four in the hub itself and two in the freehub. It's strong.
    Get over it!

    Yep, I just did that. It has quicker and better engagement than the XT I had on there and uses a solid 10mm axle and the hub body is quite a bit bigger than the XT and looks a lot stronger but I have not ridden on it much yet. There was a guy on Ebay selling the 10mm 135 ones for 52.00 buy it now a little while ago and thats where I picked up mine.

    Pricepoint also has them for like $70...
    Or you could buy my Hadley 150mm for $180, it's a small price to pay for the best DH hub on the market!
