    Upgrading my 240s hub makes the shifting smoother and the free-wheeling quieter. Hopefully having double the engagements will also mean that the machined piece between the star ratchet and the hub doesn't wear out as fast since it won't be clunking into gear as hard when shifting up. (Not sure how much that will cost yet)

    Too expensive

    Frankly, a 72 tooth option would be nicer. Loved the quicker engagement, seems to be holding up to hard use so far. Too dang expensive...is a luxury at this price...Read complete review

      Comments about DT Swiss Star Ratchet Upgrade:

      I Love my DT Hubs. Now that I've upgraded to the 36 star ratchet system from the 18, I notice almost no dead spots when I pedal. It was quick and easy to install. Also they sound much cooler, not that anyone but myself will notice. I can't say anything about durability. I only have about 6 rides on this upgrade.

            I purchased the star ratchet upgrade for my 350 rear hub and it is a huge improvement. Engagement is noticeably faster and the hub is still as quiet as ever.

            Comments about DT Swiss Star Ratchet Upgrade:

            This is the easiest, upgrade I know of. Lightens my hub by 10g, adds an additional 18 points of engagment to make it a total of 36, total time to install, less than 5 minutes. I usually take my bike into the shop for most everything, but this was EASY! A must upgrade if you have a 240s/340 DT Swiss Hub.

            Comments about DT Swiss Star Ratchet Upgrade:

            Especially if you are familiar w the easy to service applicable DT hub, this is a no brainer. Most people are fine w the 24 points of engagement, but if you have them on a 36 they do notice, hence want it. Make sure you carry your 24 ratchets in your kit in case of a strip on the trail, so you can service it on the spot. Put them on your key ring!

            Decreases substantially freewheel neutral zones. It improves speed in slower zones and ability to balance on the bike in very technical areas.
            Ten grams lighter and very pleasant noise.
