So, I am having a right old time of it trying to get a Tune MIG45, so I thought I would see what else is out there in the same kind of range, which I might buy alternatively.
I want a front hub which fulfills the following;
-Stiff, fast, etc. (ie, actually good)
-Looks sick, and can be polished up until it glows.

Get the ceramic upgrade..
I have around 7-8000kms on my second SP wheelset.. So awesome!!
Pretty lightweight, very wide bearing placement, radial laced 20h...pricey like you want also. Reputation is there too...no need to worry about the hub falling apart.
Right, i have been looking at the Extralite UltraFront SPM. It doesn't appear to be on the Extralite website. Does anyone know if this is discontinued? it is out of stock on Fairwheel. I have sent Extralite and Fairwheel messages about this, but wondered if anyone here knew...
If they are outa stock at Fairwheel they won't be for long and also try dulight.fr they might have em in stock
Right, well Fairwheel refused to sell me a Tune MIG45 for the same reason, so I wonder if it likely they will do the same with Extralite hub?
@sugarkane Did you buy yours as a single hub, or did you get it built into a wheel for you? If you did build it yourself, did you have any issues taking it apart, or was it just a case of undoing the axle ends, then sliding the axle out until the wheel was built, then putting it back in?
You can pull the axle by removing the adjuster and pushing the other side bearing out. You only need a little movement of the axle to lace up the hub.
If your any where near 85kgs like me I'd forget the dash hubs they are suitable for 60-70kg guys only and the ones that are a bit beefier are not sub 50g
The SPM is light effective and to be honest much tougher than it should be. I like too set the preload adjusters with a little low grade loctight and if any play developes then you need to get on it right away and get the preload right. They can handle a little over tension too, which makes em nice and stiff.
C X-rays of course anything else would be a waste of time
kavitator; ha, yes, you are correct. I meant straight pull, not radial.
Fairwheel will sell the Extralite, yes. They will not sell the Tune Mig 45 by itself however. If you have managed to get them to sell the Tune Mig45 to you by itself, I would like to know how you managed it!
sugarkane; I am assuming your instructions are referring to the Extralite hub. I have actually been in touch with Extralite direct, and they have shown me the instructions (although I am having trouble getting them to tell me the dimensions of the hub dimensions... do you have this info?)
And yeah, CX-Rays all the way!
The build specs for the hubs are on the Fairwheel web site, flange Di and flange to center are there
