Hi, I saw someone tuned Novatec freehub to take 11spd Campy cassette. I am looking for classic 32/36h Campy silver hubs.
What options do I have? thanks

BHS has good quality (Bitex), hubs in silver http://www.bikehubstore.com/SL210-p/sl210.htm

I can reccomend Circus Monkey another Taiwan hub http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Circus-Monkey-HRW1-Road-F-R-Hub-32-32-H-78-240g-Campy-Campagnolo-Silver-/231021248031?pt=US_Hubs&hash=item35c9f07e1f

Ambrosio, I don't know too much about, but reasonable price http://www.totalcycling.com/a-z/hubs/hubs_road/HB_ZENITH_S_R_CAMPAGNOLO.html

There's also NOS Campy of course, for a higher price.

Depends somewhat on your price range and what you mean by "classic".

White Industries get a lot of praise. http://www.whiteind.com/t11-rear-hub_1.html

ps. What you saw was someone modifying a freehub to take an 11-speed Shimano cassette. Any manufacturer that has offered a Campy freehub option for the last 14 years fits the bill since all Campy's freehubs have been 11-speed compatible since 1999.
There's sometimes a buggy.

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

Aside from clashes with your user name... :lol:

King make Campag silver hubs now, in that drilling.

Also, ask stores that are big Campag dealers. I got NOS Chorus hubs that way. They are fantastic.

White Industries T11 in silver is very classy. It's an awesome hub too.

Ambrosio's are rebadged Novatec.

You could try Royce as well, smart looking and very spendy.

Avoid Hope on Campy 11 though, if I'm right in remembering they don't work very well / aren't wide enough / end up pushing the chain against the stay on most bikes.

Royce are by far the best but there are old campag 11 speed hubs about. I have 36H athena for example in the shop. Other than that Novatec A171/F172 have the curvy campagnolo hub shell chap and 11 speed freehubs. polished silver version as well. If on a budget that's wht I would go for or NOS campag hubs or Royce.

The HOPE 11spd Campy hubs have a different coloured cassette body to differ from the older 10spd...they work fine and are a much cheaper alternative to CK...

Well, that's not completely true for aftermarket hubs. I ran into problems getting 11-speed Campag to work on Novatec hubs, I touch upon the solution in this topic: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=119840

Even after fixing the endcap problem on the Novatec D712SB disc hub described in that topic, for a 10sp cassette, I later discovered it is absolutely marginal for accepting a Campag 11sp cassette. I needed to fit a very thin spacer behind the cassette to get it to clear the spoke heads.

The Novatec F582SB Campag road hub accepts an 11sp cassette without this issue.
