I'm looking for some sexy modern-ish hubs that are non-disc.
Had a look at the usual bike shops online and the vast majority of new hubs are disc-only, and the ones I can find that are non-disc are towards the cheaper more boring end of the spectrum.

I'm after some modern cnc-style red or gold (or maybe black) hubs, mainly for xc use, straight-pull spokes would be cool 8), carbon would also be cool, no real price limit but my pockets aren't lined with gold!
Am I asking too much? if I want something like this do I have to look at some 2nd hand retro hubs?

Pics/links/inspiration appreciated :D

Tune. One of their rear hubs has a magnetic pickup, instead of a pawl. Pretty sure it's Tune anyway. They are crazy loud though, think modern Hope, then double the volume
