I run crossride hubs n hoops on my commuter, they are what came with the bike as standard.
Asa commuter i do loads of miles in all weathers, sometimes up to my cranks in flood water other times on gritty dusty canal towpath. As a result my Hubs take a lot of stick especially in the winter months.

What I like about Mavic hubs is they take this hammer for ages and ages and when they do finally need fixing they are so easy to strip and repair.

I just had to replace the rear wheel bearings and Freehub bearings, doddle and all the parts where available off the shelf from my loacal bearing shop 200 yards from where i work. 4 sealed bearings £24.00 bargain, runs like new.

Yeah, my cross ones were good - until the rim cracked in several places near the spoke holes - threw the whole thing out.

The front wheels still good though - sitting in a box in the attic

The same can't be said about the rims as I had them on my old Stiffee.
Far too flexible even in non jump situations.
Funnily enough I have heard the CR hubs are pretty durable from someone else.
My Generator AM's are still kicking about which I had laced to the CR's too.
I might just swap them over soon.

Cant say i feel the rims to be too flexible for me, but then i dont do tuff stuff like rocks and the like. My worst obstacle is a whole load of tree roots pushing up through tarmac in places and hard pack in another as i make my way along the side of the river Soar... fair makes your teeth rattle it does Laughing Laughing

it's just the hubs are so easy to knock to bits. all you need is a set of C clip pliers a hammer and a drift or punch. even the bearings knock out with a small punch. I use the old bearings to knock the new bearings in. Cool Cool

Don't get me wrong Magnus,for the price of a CR wheelset you get a lightweight set of rollers and that's half the battle.
The fact the hubs are easily maintained is the other half of the battle Cool
It's also fair to say I put mine through some shocking treatment in the Scottish Borders Rolling Eyes Embarassed

granted it is sung nice, kind of makes The rocky horror show seem moderate and almost normal by comparison.
