How good is a Superstar Fuel rear hub?
I’ve got some new rims, got some random spokes, pretty sure I can combine this with the Fuel rear hub I have and it’ll all work out but… How good is the hub? This’d be my Official Hard Use Wheels which means they don’t get used that much, but when they do it’ll be uplift days, weeks abroad, the endurance downhill, stuff where I do not want it to act up… Anyone got any experience? I assume it’s a novatech or something…Posted 8 months agoajantomMember
Seem pretty good so far. I got a set attached to Stans Flows in their New Year sale.
So far so good, I’ve repacked with grease a couple of times, and as above the sealing seems functional rather than amazing. They are very buzzy, not as loud as Hopes, but a higher pitch. Pickup is excellent due t the 6 pawls.
They’ve been down BPW and lots of rooty/rocky stuff in the south west, and are holding up well.
They’re not Novatechs. Think they’re from a French brand, defo made in Europe rather than the Far East though. Not that that makes any difference!

They’re these – rebranded Aivee MT2 hubs
Weeeeellll, further investigation reveals that rather than your boggo mud and gritty graunchiness (although there was a bit of that) the major malfunction with my hub is one the pawl seats has snapped through.
New freehub – £60. Cock.
Must be down to my uberawesome thigh POWAH, that’s the only possible explanation.Posted 7 months ago
