XT hubs are brilliant on MTBs because you can get them soaking wet with no H2O migrating into bearings. My deore hubs need to be torn down and cleaned once a year, but the seals on the XT are so good I go 3 years between servicing. Even after 3 years, the internals are still sporting good, clean lube. I should add that I do little trail riding, mostly staying on paved roads in Detroit, but even then I go up and down curbs and into potholes regularly for variety and safety. My original XT hubs are 7 years old and have almost 25,000 miles on them, but are still completely sound. Ok, I replaced the conical seals on the both hubs once. You can spend a lot more money and be overjoyed with your Phil Woods or White Industries, but of us normal avid cyclists you can't beat the Deore lineup, especially the XTs.
Came stock with my Long Haul Trucker. The freehub started to go out after 3,000 miles and I had to replace it. After roughly 6,000 of loaded touring + 1,500 miles of commuting, there is a crack in the hub at a spoke hole. I am replacing this hub to prevent future failures. Very disappointed.
