Yes there are available...they're called Dt Swiss 240's I believe they are 190 hub shells, with 240 internals, with hybrid ceramic bearings. Look at their website.

Reynolds current, lower end hubs are KT. Their older, higher end hubs were made by White Industries.

If they were on the DV46 they would have been either a DT or White Industries rear and a generic (i think this was what was supplied with the WI rear) front hub or a DT.

The lower end wheels;solitude, assualt and attack use KT hubs. As far as I am aware Reynolds never used this with the DV46 unless the generic front i describe was a KT.

I just checked again they did use an Autotec rear hub for a while. Its a bit of detective work but the maintence page on their site can be helpful for this question

If you post up a photo of what you have there should be someone here who will be able to ID it.
Reynolds have used various hubs over the years, but all the modern wheels use either the KT or DT 240s.
Previously they used hubs by Hadley and Autotec as well as WI

i know those are the ULs, but im pretty sure those are the same hubs on the dv46s the years i'm talking about. I think they were modeled after the White Industry hubs, but Reynolds branded. any info on who actually produced them and are they available under a different name now?

Kwazi, that is the Reynolds branded Hadley hub you have in that pic.
They aren't a bad hub, I've got a pair in my Edge 68 tubulars here.
Very difficult to get parts for though (I found it impossible to get a Shimano freehub body for mine even when I contacted Hadley directly)
They haven't made them for quite a long time now, probably 7-8 years.
Not as light as the DT 240 either.
I like mine though, never had a problem with them and they are a nice looking hubset IMO.
Hope that helps. :D
