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) -

Extralite seem to do limited runs of some of their hubs in silver although they currently appear to be out of stock. :(

I ended up going with carbon Ti hubs. Built the wheels and they are very light. the hubs are 224g/pair the wheels are 1020g. There is a pic of them in the Klien quantum thread I did.

The Carbon-Ti rear hub (X-hub road SL) looks pretty nice, but the NDS flange distance is discouragingly large What's the tension ratio on your wheel? Actually I'm more interested in where you source the 300g/38mm rims… :P

I see a few people recommending Novatec, but can't find anyone that sells silver Novatec hubs.

Yes they are very pretty. I laced these to some Reynolds Attack rims with silver CX ray and silver nips for a set of very light tubeless wheels. Set came out to 1182 grams.
