    light high flange front hub

    Hi, I have an XTR m-965 front hub laced to a Mavic 3.1 rim. The hubs requires new cups and I see this as an opportunity to pick up a new front hub. I'm looking for a light disc compatible front hub, with high flanges for stiffness. maybe a King?

    Thanks

    I do not consider CK hubs to be high flange.

    American Classic and WTB Laser Lite hubs are and weigh ~140g.

    Flange diameter makes little difference in stiffness on a tangentially laced wheel, though.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
