I'm on the look out for some nice road hubs, or a 130 rear and a normal mtb front, either way....oh and they need to be available in red.

I have noted the Chris King, Hope and Middleburn hubs, can anyone suggest other brands worthy of a look and inspiration, I'm looking for no-nonsense fit and forgets.

Cheers,


Lee.

Looking towards the more established (old school) manufacturers and so-called boutique at the mo.

It looks like I'm going to be using Hope Pro-3's by the looks of it, looks like I need to make a few phone calls to some friends out there next week and see if they have any old stock in their machine shops first.
