I'm building a light wheelset and am looking for a light and not ridiculously expensive rear 24 hole campy comp. hub. So far my considerations are:
Heylight
FRM feather carbon
The in-house speedcific hub (only if I can get a 24)
Maybe AM Classic

Does anyone have and feedback on these hubs? THanks

I have 4 AMClassic rears (2 road and 2 mountain) all from the last 3 years and i have had good luck with three of them. The oldest one (actually has the least miles) started going bad right off. they have added a seal since then, and all my newer ones have it. Those three have been great.

I don't know how the Soul-Kozaks perform, but they are very light. The Extralite Ultrahubs weigh 165g, Schockbike lists them, but no further info found. Zipp 202 is a very good and decent light hub.
