    Default Looking for hubs in all the wrong places

    Thought it might be nice to build a set of wheels for my wife's cafe' racer as she has been asking for a lighter set of wheels for awhile now. The problem is, since the last time I have built a set of wheels it seems that mid range and lower range hubsets have all but disappeared from the websites of all the usual suspects. The bike is a Masi Soulville 10, so I'd like to get something nice but not Chris King expensive. I'm not turning much up in the mid range apart from run of the mill Shimano stuff. I'd like to build on a high flange touring hub of good quality. Something with a decent looking profile in the vain of Campy sheriff star design would be awesome. I found some track hubs but nothing in cassette or QR axle. So far this is the closest that fits the bill Grand Cru 13mm Touring Hub, 11 speed Compatible – Velo Orange but I would like some other options too and these don't come in black. Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Thanks

    In terms of colour, shape and price point, the only one that comes to mind is Halo. Not sure if they are available through US retailers, however. Also, they only come in 32h.

    I have no experience with Halo's products, so this is neither a recommendation nor an endorsement.

    Chakashi,

    Thanks, The Halo hubs are perfect. Doesn't look like they are available at Halo USA. They have an international request on the UK site. I'll see what the deal is.

    They're here! Going to be paired with Velocity Quill rims.
