Am after some advice, I am building up retro frame with moderns parts and need some 32 hole hubs that will take a 11sp campag cassette.

It appears that you can only buy Record hubs now which are about twice what I was willing to pay - are there any other options? 130mm spacing.

Have a look at Total Cycling, they've got some old stock Campag hubs:

The older Century Grey Centaur ones definitely take 11 speed and are a bit lighter and cheaper than the more recent ones.

Ambrosio Zeniths - available in polished finish so suitably retro-looking

+1 for the Zeniths, nice-looking hubs these, whisper-quiet bearings and not too pricey.

Another +1 for Ambrosio Zeniths

I'm in a similar position i.e. Campagnolo 10 speed hub for retro build and after much searching for good reasonably priced secondhand Record/Chorus/Centaur hubs I've decided to build some wheels using new Ambrosio Zenith hubs.

Spa cycles have them on offer at £69 a pair

Good luck with your build
