Lock nut, Cheap Feel
I had a pair of these built with a set of Sun Tomac Wheels. I like the wheel, the hub rolled nicely. I owned these for about 6 months when riding a technical portion of the trail, I noticed some slop in my rear hub. After checking it out, the lock nut had backed off slightly, and as I rode, it crushed/pressed in the cup and it was over. I know that these are a bottom of the line hub, but after pulling it all apart, it was a really cheap feeling set-up. I guess you always get what you pay for.
