    Who makes a cheap 165mm hub/distributes Formula hubs?

    I need a new 32H 12x165mm hub for my SGS, but do not want to shell out $300 for one (DT Swiss, Hadley, SunRingle). I'd like to pay tops $150. Formula makes one, but I can't find anyone who distributes or sells Formula hubs. Does anyone have any leads on a cheap 32H 12x165mm hub, or a Formula distributor?

    does WTB still make them? They are the ones that made the 165mm for the SGS line

    QBP distributes some Formulas, but doesn't have a single 165mm hub on their site. BTI only has a 36H Ringle ABBAH (and, with an MSRP of $270, I'm kinda screwed anyway).

    I may try emailing WTB or Iron Horse and seeing if they have anything.

    There is a chic (geargurl) on fleabay who has DT Swiss/Hugi 32h and 36h hubs for $199.99, which is still a fair price. I'm thinking about one myself...
