    Lightest 20mm hub?

    I've been building wheels with DT 240s (165g/$220) and Atomlab Pimplite (170g/$100) front hubs for a while now so I'm wondering if there's something else I should be considering. I'm curious to see what the lightest hub you can find is but I'm only gonna use something with a 6-bolt mount with a reasonable amount of disc-tab surface area (think NOT like an American Classic rear hub) and a reasonable expectation of a trouble free life.

    Okay, that could replace the DT 240s as the $200+ish option. I guess hoping for sub 150g is unrealistic.

    I like the Atomlab's price cuz it leaves budget for CX-Ray spokes but the last couple I've built on weighed 177g. 160ish at $130ish would be nice.
