Kinda sounds like the bike by which all others will be measured this year. Could you give a quick comparison to the '14 Slash? These are the two bikes I am losing sleep over these days.

The Standard By Which All Others Are Measured

Rating:

The Good: Featherweight Simple and serviceable Bombproof reliability That unmistakable Hugi sound Adaptability

The Bad: Slow engagement Price

Overall:

I have been on DT 240s for over 10 years. In those 10 years the only service that has been required is a simple regrease of the internals every year or so, depending on mileage, which requires no specialized tools. In my opinion, these hubs are the gold standard for reliability, serviceability, and weight. The new ones are especially great as the interchangeable end caps allow you to run 9/15/20mm in the front or 135x10 or 142x12 in the back. Gotta love that!

The engagement is a little slow by today's standards but I guess I don't mind it because I have never been left wanting for quicker engagement. Yes, they are spendy but if you want the best, it comes at a price.

Save your pennies, buy 240s and never buy another hubset again.
