Nice wheelset!

that is pretty light for 29er wheels.

what's the story with the free hub - a bit lacking in splines - is it for single speed?

It is the driver body for SRAM's XX1 1x11 group, I ordered the Extralite hubs December 12th, Just received them from Extralite, I had to get a driver body for SRAM's XX1 1x11 group for the American Classic hubs which I used until I could get theses Built

OP, Are you saying that you are using and AC xx1 freehub on the extralite hubs. If you are running an extralite xx1 freehub please share where to find them

What I was trying to say is that when I ordered the Extralite Hub it came with the extralite xx1 freehub, Extralight had xx1 freehub,s before a lot of others, so I thought I would be all set, It just took so long to get to me, American Classic sent me a xx1 freehub body when they started making them, so I could ride my new xx1 group. :thumbup:
Excuse the long winded

Im also about to built a set with extralite hubs.
I know there a few users here, so could someone share experience about Hyperhubs (mainly front one). Any issues or something?
I will use them for everyday riding and racing, not for showbike.
