Looking at the 56mm x 27mm wide tubs carbon-cycle is selling on eBay.
Hubs are either Powerway R13 or Chosen :A1146BA&A7577BXO(295g/pair).

Any known issues with either?
Is the Chosen hub better quality?

Another forum member and I were just talking about this same topic. The folks at carbon-cycle prefer the Chosen hub on their own bikes, and told me that "they roll better". This is obviously a personal opinion/preference. However, the powerway hubs are quite a bit lighter, so your question is something I would like answered too.

I ended up geting Powerway R36 (straight pull). will let you know when the wheels arrive how they are. With modern bearings, I think they are all absically the same anyway
