    Lightest economy non-offset 135mm hub found - Bonz trials hub

    Pair a Bonz 135mm trials hub 237g (got mine from tartybikes) with a Neon 47mm rim 570g and DT revolution spokes 150g and you can have a front wheel for only 957g for summer trail riding.
    Paired with a 1250g HuskerDu and I should loose 2.5lb on my front wheel alone vs a DMR hub/80mm Fat Sheba rim(drilled)/DT champ spoke/Devist8er tire combo.

    Hub and rim arrived today, but I cheaped out a bit and bought the 1.8mm spokes instead of 1.5 because they were only $0.50ea.

    For those who might say the Because 135mm disc hub at 212g is lighter, keep in mind it has uneven flanges for an offset wheel build... so for those interested in an offset hub for regular pugsley forks your option is even better!!!!

    Should change to "Lightest affordable 135mm hub" then, as these are 1/3 the price.
