just seen a pair of cricus monkey hubs on the bay.

front: 135 g (inc bolts)
rear: 225 g

I would call a set of 26 in lefty wheels light at 1450 g or less but I have no idea when it comes to individual parts.

Notice the cut out around the bolt holes, hmm...... :?

As it happens I have most of the lefty hubs in a spreadsheet :D

These are in comparison to the stock Cannondale hub at 115g/£35, there are some more exotic hubs but they were stupid money so didn't make it into the list.

Is definitely the best looking though!

Stick to the stock Cannondale hub, 115g without nut and bolt I think. Upside is that it only costs £40. I think it's made by Formula?

As I say, probably keep the stock hub and find a nice rear hub that fits your needs, either light, durable or light and durable (and expensive!).

The stock hub is great. P321 is nice, but only makes sense to me if you're getting a Lefty package deal or after some bling.

The only thing that seems worthwhile to me VS a LeftySL is Tune/Extralite.

hmmm, so 120 g ( without rotor bolts) is quite heavy in comparison to the above.

Was mostly curious - I have DT swiss XCR 1.4 wheels that I have no plans to replace ..... yet .

Clee Cycles were really helpful in hand picking a light (117g with bolt) Cannondale Si hub for my build and around £40. There seems to be lots of variation in the SI hub weight so hand picking was the way to go. Same weight as the P321 but much cheaper! I also couldn't justify anywhere upwards of £100 more to go for Tune when at the end of the day it is a hub shell and 2 bearings and I don't quite trust some of the superlight options like Extralite...

All in all a build with Sapim CX-Rays, Stans Podium, Cannondale Si hub was around the cost of a Tune or Extralite hub alone and 560g

The lefty hub is just a container for two bearings, get the cheapest one imho. The only thing that can make a difference is the spoke flanges on the hub. Wider flange means stiffer hub if my logic isn't betraying me.

Kong is more 205g

Cannondales Lefty Hub or Tune or Extralite I say too, others are just expensive or heavy.
