Gonna be hard to beat the BHS option in terms of value.

If it were me though, I'd go with a T11 front. It's a tad heavier, but it's hard to find a more bombproof hub.

My standard answer to a 'what hubs' question is a Chris King.
When it must be fairly cheap the standard answer is a second hand Chris King.
The R45 is lightest but Classics can be had (fairly) cheap off fleabay. Pretty much indestructable.
