Hey guy's, I've decided to get back into power based training and bought a Powertap SL+. It's the silver alloy and carbon hub(32 hole). Sorry, I didn't have time to find a picture.

I would like to find a 24 hole front hub that goes really well with it(preferably a carbon alloy mix), so I'm looking for some good ideas.

Thanks for the help.

Yep. sorry, should have stated that I have visited all the obvious places and seen the powertap front hub. I'm looking for something with some carbon in it. I was hoping to come up with some ideas even if they're no longer available and I have to wait for one to pop up on ebay.

Nuke Proof??????? They were sh1Te when they were new, nevermind how old they will be now... :wink:

There was another carbon wrapped hub from a few years back, but i cant think who made it.

I was in the same boat- I was always a bit miffed that i couldn't find a matching front to go with the PT. I'm sure the fronts used to be all alloy.
But i saw that with the carbon inserts and took the plunge. To be fair, it's a lot better looking in real life :o

Since you're willing to wait, I'd send Jure an elf and have him wrap a cosmetic layer between the flanges. You'll get the look you're after without having to sacrifice any performance.
