Shimano's 105 Rear Freehub is an excellent start to a strong, light rear wheel. The diamond-polished bearing races mean the hub rolls super smoothly and the labyrinth seals shut out dust, dirt and water. Plus, the cold-forged-aluminum hub shell is beautiful and built to last. You get Shimano's excellent quick-release skewer, too.
I used this hub to replace an old Ritchey hub that had worn out. This new 105 is a pleasant surprise in that my 2001 Specialized Sirrus Comp. has not lost any performance. In fact it rides a little smoother than before.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
