I didn't see any threads on these hubs, so here we are. I just ordered a rear wheel with a DT Hugi Swiss Made hub. Greasing the ratchets seems easy, so long as the freehub body is not stuck. I'll be fitting a Chris King Classic hub on the front end. Interestingly, many negative reviews about CK rear hubs requiring regular maintenance (like way too frequently), so the Hugi rear may be preferred to the more expensive CK Classic rear. I think this hub came out around 1995.

I have the disc versions on an old bike. 20mm front and 135mm rear. The rears are loud, like as loud as anything modern if not louder.
Which was nice at the time, loud meant exotic and expensive. Whereas I much prefer as quiet as possible when I'm riding.

Top hubs form bitd. The stuff you would see being kept in the glass cabinet for you to drool over.

Probably kept under glass to prevent that from happening. :LOL:

Cool, I expect to get the wheels later this week. I already have the manual from Hugi w/a diagram of the hub, how to regrease the ratchets. I have never taken apart a hub, so this will be my first go.
