Ok, so is it considered bad form to mix front and rear hubs on a wheelset? I was lurking on fairwheel's page and was thinking about the tune front hub with a farsports 38 on the front. I have not decided on the rear hub yet but was thinking of a farsports 50 rim. Tubular set likely a 20/28 with sapim c-xrays. I was 300 lbs on December 9th. I am 260 now with a target weight of 210-220. I have not had the chance to get hooked up to a power meter, but well... I break rear wheels/hubs. I currently have Spinergy Xaero lites. They hold up great, are super comfy, but do not transfer power well. Also they are like spinning a fan at 24mph and up. These will likely be my first aero wheels(getting Zipps at a later date). Any hub suggestions? Soul? I Really prefer straight pull stuff. Thanks-David
Hi teufelhunden222, yes absolutely, you could try the farsports wheels, and you really should be riding at least a 25mm Rear tyre (so that your rear tyre pressure is lower and about the same as your Front tyre pressure or a little higher) and a 23mm Front tyre should be fine ... have a look at these ...

- there is a choice ... DT Swiss 240S hubs, Tune, Bitex, Novatec, Choice, etc
Grease ... choice of grease around your hub ratchet and freehub mechanism is important ...
- I have been using Belray Waterproof Grease - this grease resists water washout, bearing contamination, improves seal functions and has very low friction properties.
You could also use a nice alloy 23mm wide rim, have a look here ... http://fairwheelbikes.com/cycling-blog/products/2013-rim-roundup.html
