Anyone able to advise on hubs that are super fast running (I've experienced others which are crap)... Considering builing some superlight wheels and can get Zipp 250 rims for about $370 each. Sound like a good price?

take a look at the extralite ultrahubs. 162g for the rear and 62g for the front hub. they look pretty sweet. http://www.extralite.com/Products/ultrahubs_anglo.htm

the whole wheelset might be under 1000g - pretty damn light.

I know what you mean. I know it doesn't matter much if the seals make it slow in your hand but I like them to spin.

Mavics are what Im moving away from... disappointed with them. They are OK... but hubs don't spin too well.. plus, they are 1500g. Im looking for around a 1000-1100g wheelset.

I built up a nice set of race wheels with WHite Industries road hubs...90 front, 265 rear. Not the lightest, but quite nice.

Try Tune Mig 66 and a Tune Mag 160 hub along with DT Aerolite spokes or Sapim CX-Ray spokes. You won't be disappointed.
