You can get them with lower spoke counts, just most places don't stock them. Have a look around, do a few web searches.

Hi,

would appreciate if any on could give me contact details for the same.

I love building wheels, but when we talk about alloy clinchers with great hubs, and built by someone you have to pay to do it, you may as well get some Neutrons. It's not much worth the hassle to go custom, unless you know exactly what you want in the first place and you can't get that factory built.

I think to you. and please also don't abbreviate words like 'are' into 'r' like you are texting.

Thanks.
