C50 has a 16 hole front hub BTW. A like for like hub to replace the Dura-Ace doesn't exist. They're one of the most highly regarded hubs that money can buy. I can't think of a good reason not to use them.

IIRC Alchemy makes a 16h front. This would be the only hub I can think of that might be better than the D/A.

The problem I have is I have the c50's but the front rim has cracked, so I thought replacement rim, a quick look through eBay shows up a da front wheel but has a 20 hole rim, I though I could buy this then at a later date rebuild with 20h dura ace hub which now seems impossible, may just hold out for a da wheel to rock up on eBay in a 16h! I just need a front rim but don't fancy the £499 price tag
