    Front hubs are simple. Depends on the weight. An $80 midrange hub is about 160g. An ArchEx rim is about $88. I used Dt Supercomp spokes for an ArchEx build It hits roots and rocks a lot. I'd reuse the hub. The Park TM-1 tensioning tool makes it an easy job.

    Are they worth reusing or should I just upgrade and start from scratch?

    If it weighs less than 190g I'd reuse it Upgrades to check on.include better bearings and endcaps for RWS thru-bolt. The weight weenies section is a good place to look for better hub discussions.

    Picked up a new WTB SX24, to get me back on the trail & then later that day picked up a set of Bontrager 28-hole FCC alloy front hub, Bontrager Race 32-hole rear hub; Bontrager Mustang Disc 29 rims from a Trek Rig for cheap...
