" Stiff front, rear acts like a noodle, "
The Review
-Don't know where to put the 'neutral' comments, so I'd just say here that the hubs are noisy. Some people like it, but I particularly don't because it's disturbing in a group ride and attracts undesired attention along the road.

-The availability of the radial flange option is good for aerodynamic front wheelset set-ups.
Strengths
First off when I clipped on, the smoothness was immediately felt. The main attraction is the EXTREME smoothness. Can't help but to empasize a second time, this is very smooth and doesn't wrestle for a stop at all. This attributes to the above-average performance.

Secondly, the low weight on these noticeably affect the rotational inertia of the set-up. Couldn't notice this on the Nano Elite and AC wheelsets as they had lighter AC hubs, but the stock Soul 3.0 on my kaki's bike interchanged with these really felt very different. Low weight would probably clock it 5 chillis if not for the rear hub.

-'Bling' look w/ the words emblazen, "tune" for posers.

-Besides these, considering the weight, and despite the relatively low stiffness of the rear hub, I'd still rate this 5 for reliability as it has taken sprints and pavement jumping safely like a bombproof shell.

Weaknesses
-The rear hub acts like a noodle, doesn't have the desired stiffness for a hub of German manufacture. Still functional, but I expected more. The rear is smooth in terms of willingness to turn
-Very costly, kaki got it off a LBS at around a quarter of a grand for a pair of these; considering their performance as compared to cheaper alternatives like American Classic hubs, these aren't really worth the buck, so 3 chillis for the value

" Ultimate Bling* "
The Review
After an anxious wait, i finally got the hubs i've been waiting for!! Tune revealed the new MIG 70 and MAG 190 for 2005, just when u thought they couldn't get lighter...

A weight-weenie staple, the MIG+MAG is the ultimate in no-nonsense race-tech, simple and sweet! The super free-wheel produces a loud crackle reminisence of the old Ringle, AC, Hugi hubs, u get heard before u get seen! Laced up with legend Mavic 217 SUP Ceramics, DT Revo Spokes and DT Alu Nipples only to weigh a measely 1.4kg, it may cost more than Crossmax SL's but i find them well worth it... ChrisKing eat your heart out!!

*note - buyers who want to lace their spokes radially should not forget to get the radial-specific ones.

Till i can fault them, i'll give it a big "5"!!!
Afterall, Tune is THE no-compromise precision brand in bikes!!
