Taiwan, there was about 30-45 seconds of down then up up up finish was at 3275m. But that is off topic. On topic at 66g that front hub is really nice, I just wish the rear could lose some weight but for the price I don't think they can be beat.
came with Ti/carbon skewers @43g
199$ free shipping
i'm going to build with sapim c x-ray , 24mm carbon tub 20 holes and 38mm carbon tub 24 holes rims
1100g wheelset for 500 euros

Based on an email exchange with him, he's recently switched from a 68 gram front hub to the slightly heavier 78 gram front hub - strengthening the hypothesis that his hubs are the same as the ones advertised on BikeHubStore. Curious that he switched from the 68g to the 78g hub citing "better quality". Anyone have any clue what would make the 78g hub better than the 68g hub, other than the obvious "more durable because its heavier" claim?
Larger bearings, wider flange spacing yielding near optimal bracing angle and yet still very affordable. I too have switched my line (Hurricane, Diablo, CrossRock) to this hub for the front, paired with 211 gm rear, a little heavier but worth it 288 gm pfor a hub set is still very good.

Your 150lbs will be fine with an aluminum axle. StuTheWeak's experience really, really needs to be marked with an asterisk - he is on the heavier side of things at this time.
+1. I have riders weighing 180+ lbs riding with the alloy axle no problems. Go for it.
I've ridden thin axles like that found on a Velocity Road hub...only 10mm diameter. I broke it in two with very mild use
I only weigh 240lbs in my birthday suit & with an empty stomach...go figure!
If it wasn't for the bearing play in the AC 205...it would be perfect.
Neuvation F100 11' "Road Bike" 16.80lbs
Specialized Tarmac Pro 11' "WW Bike" 14.25lbs
Anyway built the wheels up with IRD Cadence rims, DT Revs and alloy halo nipples, very happy with them freehub is very loud but I like it and being 6 pawl sounds like you are going twice as fast when you freewheel
1270 grams for about £180
I've had the same problem (NDS end cap coming loose) with my powertap hub.
Righty, a bit of light grease on the ratchet cuts down on freehub noise.
After putting some miles into these hubs, the only remark I have is that they are unremarkable, which is pretty good in my book. No problems, built up smoothly and all. They feel really solid out of the box. I have these laced to some alu rims, total weight around 1500g, and they fly. Good job Brandon for a great product at an affordable price!
However the freehub seal is a simple O ring rather than a labyrinth and there are only 3 pawls rather than 6. They wont take 11 speed cassettes either.
I have been riding mine for only ~1500 km so far so can't vouch for durability but they are good so far.
Brendan's good to deal with.
