Just got a set from ebay and scaled them. Weighs 64.6gr and 194.5gr as advertised. My friend has a black set and his ones are even lighter, weighing 62/192gr.
Build quality is just okay, although not comparable to more expensive machined hubs.

I got them at $150 w/shipping, and my friend paid the same, but unfortunately the sellers raised the price significantly. :[

Will use them with chinese 38mm clincher rims I have bought with group buy.
Rims were heavier than I have expected (~450gr), so they will make a ~1370gr clincher wheelset.

I got a set of these hubs in green yesterday. Here's the measurement I took last night, if you got anything different please let me know.

Using the diagram here http://www.sheldonbrown.com/rinard/spocalc.htm below are the measurements.

Front Hub:
S = 2.6mm
d = 30mm
A = 17mm
WL = 33mm
WR = 33mm
B = 17mm

Rear Hub
S = 2.6mm
dL = 37mm
dR = 50mm
A = 32mm
WL = 32.5mm (Edited - Not 42.5)
WR = 17.5mm (Edited - Not 7.5)
B = 48mm

Regards....!

I bought a set in black body with red axel ends about 8 months ago for $139US plus postage (to NZ). Sadly, the rims I was to use for the project (60mm carbon clinchers at 960g/pr) have been a bit of a drama so I have not got them built up to RIDEABLE state yet. The bearings are very smooth, I must say. My set have a slight off centre on the spoke holes within the flange (not good) and are about 260g/pr.
Updated: Racing again! Thought this was unlikely! Eventually, I may even have a decent race!
Edit: 2015: darn near won the best South Island series (got second in age
-group)..woo hoo Racy Theremery is back!!

WL = 42.5mm
WR = 7.5mm

I'd be very timid using that rear.

Rotaz weighs more, but I think it has better flange spacing.

That measurement can't be right, should probably be 32.5 and 17.5.
Just by looking at it you can tell this hub has no worse geometry than the Rotaz.

Oooh, actually that's a very generous 19mm DS.

Way better geometry than Rotaz then.

I'd agree that is pretty awesome flange spacing all things conisdered. Though, the Rotaz is suppose to be identical to American Classic hub flange spacing which is 30mm/20mm. I like it a tad more.

If Dati had a beefy axle and came in 36h...I could be swayed.
