    Default hub options for campy 11-speed compatible?

    To all the ballers, if you were going to build a wheelset with nemesis rims, and wanted something campy that will work with 11, but want to try something different than the record hubs, what would it be?

    the obvious choices are king R45, alchemy orcs, maybe DT swiss. Anything else? How do those compare for those who have built or ridden them?

    You could always take a look the new White Industries T11. It is a bit more reasonably priced than the options you mentioned. It is slightly heavier, but it is easily as durable as the Kings or Alchemys.
    You could go with the DTs, but frankly I think they are pretty overpriced for what you get. The new Alchemy lineup looks like it will be pretty sweet, but we will have to wait for it to be officially released. I was always a fan of the ELF/ORC and hopefully their new stuff matches that in quality.
    The Kings would be a safe bet on this one too. They are super easy to adjust, all though they don't have quite as wide of flange spacing as the Alchemys. Either way though, I think you would be satisfied with a King, White, or Alchemy.

    ya, good point. I had a set of white H2s for 10 speed that seemed to last great and built into a straight wheelset that gave me lots of love. Had some H1s previously that I wasn't nearly as thrilled with but I'm sure they've upped their game since then. thx for the input

    For the mileage you put on, I would go with Records or Whites.

    Is that implying that from your experience that the Kings for campy are less than the regular king hubs? I am just curious- I always appreciated your insight.

    the biggest question is whether you will be building a 32 spoke wheel. like justin said, campy rules if you put lots of miles in for the ease of maint, relatively low cost and durability, but if you're wanting something any any drilling but 32, then you have to look elsewhere.

    i'm happy with my CK hubs personally, 28h build.

    this is obviously a small sample, but it gives me a bit of pause about spending pretty big bucks on another set of r45's. like i said, i'm happy with mine, but...

    As it happens, I just finished building a wheelset with Nemesis rims. Went with White Industries T11's.

    I'm really liking the look of the whites but I checked quickly online and only found the T-11s in shimano freehub. And it also happens that I need to go with 28/32 b/c that is the pair of rims I managed to get. So it's gonna be a 32 rear 28 front.

    I just went through a decision process with silvery hubs and came down with White Industry T11's which is slightly heavier but cheaper than Alchemy. Alchemy new hubset for Campy 11 will be available in about 2-3 months which is my best estimate. Also looked at Kings R45 which is less loud than the classic version. Royce which is heavier but stout. Curtis Odom is just absolutely beautiful and actually not too expensive, but quite a bit heavier.

    The T11s do come with a Campy freehub body. Additionally, you can get them in 28/32.

    Does anyone happen to know where the Royce hubs slot in for price?

    Royce is priced about $50-$80 over White Industries.

    I am a big CK fan, I've had many sets of classic hubs (awesome)and their headsets are the standard.

    R45's in my experience are not for training, they are to be used less than everyday, according to CK they are race day hubs.

    I know myself, I wouldn't want to service hubs anymore than once a season, at most. I think most of us here want to ride bits that run post apocalypse.

    R45's are lightweight, race hubs not for training wheelsets. I don't really get why they even come in 28 and 32 spoke counts.

    Why do you think so? I have found that they do awesome for a daily driver setup. They are easy to adjust. They sure aren't the lightest option out there, but they do well for most.

    DT swiss.

    Note that there is a full stop (or 'period' as you yankees call it) after that statement.

    They're light, reliable (mine have over 25,000km on them without touching them, and i've had xc wheels that have gone through more/worse.

    Just feed them a $40 star ratchet every 30-50,000km and you're sweet. Bearings are a standard size, are excellent quality and they are available in all the drillings you could want.

    If you don't want to stretch for the 240s, get 350s, which have the same internals in a marginally heavier taiwanese made shell, rather than the swiss made one on the 240s. 28/32 or 32/32 only
