V2... Good stuff, powderpuff.

Rating:
The Good:

Fast, clean, loud and mean. Lacing this hub up was, by far, the easiest I've ever done. With the minimalist hub guard, it worked great for my style of riding. It stood up to the abuse of pegless street and park riding. I do a lot of axle stalls and grinds and never broke a spoke. The 3/8" ratchet drive bolts are rad and the Woodgrain is sexay!

The Bad:

As mentioned, the side to side wobble was noticeable after a while, and only got worse over time...even after pulling it apart and servicing it numerous times. I'm picky about having my bike feel solid and it was enough for me to switch.

Overall Review:

This hub lasted me 2 years and I loved it until the wobble got too bad. The design is aesthetically pleasing and the sound is nice. The bolts worked perfect for stalls and I still use them on my new hub. I got mine in Woodgrain and it looks badass. I'd definitely get another if the wobble was taken care of.

Tree Cassette V3 RHD

Rating:
The Good:

Straight pull spokes, clean profile somewhat lightweight.

The Bad:

Rear hub has play side to side movement, the driver moves back and forth on the hub creating the hub's play. Also has only gotten worse over time, contacted Tree they said its suppose to be like that and there is no fix. Quite overpriced especially since there are kinks.

Overall Review:

Clean looking hub unfortunately until they fix up the movement in the driver/wobble I do not recommend this hub unless side to side wobble dosn't bother you.
