Then on the wheelbuild page, for Carbon clinchers, they spec the RH190.. but on the Hub page, they have no RH190! It's the 170, 200, etc... Pretty pics, but terrible usability/navigation.
So where can I get some pics of the C4 hubs and actually know which hub I'm looking at?
I am not sure if C-4 is still actively in business. Perhaps they are revamping their product line accounting for the disarray on their web site. As far as I can tell, the only place that has existing stock is Nico's. Regardless, the pros and cons of those hubs have been thoroughly discussed on WW. Search the topic and you'll be able to sample a complete spectrum of opinion; they seem controversial compared to many of the competition.
They are - I contacted via email yesterday after typing about them in this thread. They responded to me almost immediately (with 30 minutes) and we had a few back/forth emails. So they are still very much in business; and gave me quite a nice quote on some new Enve 3.4 SS wheels. 5 year warranty on hubs, and also warranty on wheelbuild (but we didn't go into that).
I did search on WW for C4 hub, and came up with nothing. I have to dig deeper to find that thread your talking about - I really want to read it. Not sure what else to search for besides C4.

Budget would be nice to know
I am 90 kg, 195 cm and race Reynolds DVT46UL ,now superseded by the (fractionally heavier) "Forty-Six" that weigh just below 1200 grams. Never broken a spoke never had to re-true in 2 years, they have no weight limit. If you don't want so Aero the "Thirty-two" is 100 grams lighter again for the same price
If budget was more I would most likely look at Madfibre over RZR's though. Apart from the value component, I think they simply look Mad!
