    My bike came with Saint hubs, I'm not very happy with them. I blew up one in April, now my second one is done. The axle housing inside the hub snapped in two pieces, allowing the freehub to pull right off. Anyone have any suggestions on a replacement hub? I want something that will stand up to hard riding/hucking. I thought saints were supposed to be able to handle that...

    You can get any 10mm x 135mm thru-axle hub and run an IS 6-bolt Shimano rotor. That should give you about 20 options or more.
