The hadley thread(s) got me thinking... am I missing any high engagement point hubs during my quest for a new SS rear disc wheel, cassette style?
Hadley: 108pt - swiss watch, relatively heavy?
King SS: 72 pt... the standard for all other hubs to be measured by (except for price)
Hope Pro2 SS: 48 pt... light, easily serviceable, lots of options, steel driveshell standard, reasonable price... a winner?
DT swiss 240 ss: light, how many points? centerlock rotors only.
American Classic: 36 pts? realibility issues?
I think I have convinced myself the Pro2's are the right balance of cost, weight, reliability, and engagement. Is there a magical SS cassette hub out there I am missing. Sure, I'll take the 72 pt King, if someone wants to cut me a sweet deal
Well stated cowdog I love the King hubset on my geared bike, but prices seem to have gone thru the roof since I bought them, plus the move to disc. ~$420 vs ~$220 retail, King SS disc vs Pro2... striking.
