Hello all, i want some opinions about hub upgrading. I am riding xc but mostly commuting with the bike. These are some models i was looking at:

- Novatec D041 SB/ D142 SBT
- Shimano Deore M525
- Sram MTH 506

Which would you choose? Any sugestions in this price range is welcome. Thanks!

I would go with Shimano. Some LX ones I have are over 20 years and 30,000 miles and still have pristine bearing surfaces. The sealing is simply fantastic.
