How about a Tune hub. They are light and tool butter smooth.

Sent from my HTC. (where has their sponsorship gone?)

I recommend Extralite. Light, durable, easy to adjust bearing preload, easy to service, and easy to obtain spare parts from the company.

If you do not want to invest a lot of money, take the AC (American Classic). Very nice are WI (White Industries), but they are not too light...
