Andrew says this "_and there is certainly no negative to being able to fine tune bearing adjustment._"  Your experiences are different than mine.  How much do you weigh and how bad are your line choices?  The one fancy brand with preload that I used came loose too often. Always in the middle of a really deep ride, for some reason. Winter was a nightmare. Loose hubs = broken axles if you don't get on them right away. I'm really hesitant to run a hub with preload ever again.  Hopes work great, then they get gritty and need service after a year of muddy rides, but they never die half way through a ride, and never skip.  That said, I _really_ want quiet hubs without a huge unsprung weight penalty.  Higher engagement seems less reliable (as DT has proven).  Is the Project 321 3x6 option still quiet? I bet it's a more reliable option that is also less likely to skip in the winter (at least we ride in kneepads these days) when you're past due for a service.  I'll always choose the more reliable option. Edit:  I should also say, great review!
