I am finally going to do myself a light wheelset using some 300g 38mm deep carbon rims i have imported. I ideally will use a 18h front and 24rear but i have 20h front rims too. Given the wheels are for light blue klein quantum with silver dura ace 9 speed silver hubs are must. I am however undecided on hubs.

I can easily buy ambrosio (novatec) zenith light weight hubs in silver but these are 290g for a pair so hardly light and i would rather use the heavier white industries t11 hubs for an extra 55g.

So what is silver and lighter well i could use tune hubs and the wheels would come out at 1045g with sapim cx rays. I could use the super spoke to save more weight i suppose.

Are there any lighter silver hubs. I'd rather not drop the spoke count i am 82kg but i suppose it could try that.

Bitex?

BHS in the States uses their hubs and there are light options. Don't know what distribution to UK would be.

I get Bitex off ebay, and there's a guy in Germay selling them too at a decent price.

Why didn't I think of Bitex.

Yes 300g 38mm tubular rims Marin want to have something close to 1000g.

I ended up with a BikeHubStore Bitex hub when I was looking for an 18 hole front (not a lot of choice out there in 18 hole, especially if you're a cheapskate like me). Still have them in the 66g version too (and in silver) -
