    No mention I could see of what hubs/spokes are used in wheelset. I would rather buy the rims and choose good reliable hubs and spokes; build myself or hire a builder. Would not be too excited about a factory build at that price on eBay.

    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    Agreed - the rims may sound good, but the rest isn't worth the risk.

    Thanks for digging that out ... I overlooked it.



    Here is a Discussion on the Novatec hubs in general.

    Here are two discussions on the specific hubs listed with these wheels. Here and Here

    Common consensus is that they are of reasonable quality and seem to hold up ok.
