    extactly what I was thinking... the weight is twice any good hub but at that price why not, hell it's a SS so 300 more grams isn't going to effect it too much ha.

    thanks

    649 might include the cog, spacers, and lockring, and 460 may not. Also, the Woodman comes in a QR version that is lighter.
    It's not the lightest hub out there, but it hold up well. and no stuck F/W's to fight with.

    ah ok..
    man wish I would have spotted this before getting the Spot spacers for my King hub, cost me the same... $30+shipping, oh well. I'll prob snag the hubs and wait until I get a disc setup and then build em.

    I just got the Nashbar SS hub($26) and built it with a Mavic x217 SUP($11). Its a good hub esp for the money. It does feel slightly on the portly side but nowhere near the weight of a Shimano hub with a cassette on it. The hub only has 2 very small cursive n's to indicate that its a Nashbar hub, you hardly notice them.

    It's 581g nekked, no cog, no spacers, no lockring, but incl bolts. Feels solid. I've got a spare but wish I had gotten more. Seems this will never ever happen again so cheap.

    Nashbar was having 35% off so I ordered a bunch of stuff!! My LBS was pretty impressed with the hub/rim for how cheap they were. Built up a strong wheel!
