I think these must have been launched when I was falling out of love with MTBing so they completely passed me by.

I have recently come upon a pair and they appear to be luverly, are they?

I'm not looking for a valuation by the way, just info!!

I've just put a pair on a bike I'm building. They look nice and run smoothly but I believe that they had trouble with axles snapping.

I'm spending this weekend riding in Wales so that should be a pretty good test for them.

Great, thanks Russell. It'll be really useful to hear how you get on with them!

As an addendum to the 'axle' comment. Chain reaction do sell spare axles for them for about £25, so its not the end of the world if something does go wrong.

I think that they use sealed cartridge bearings aswell which are pretty commony available so future servicing should be a doddle.

I think!
