    I'd choose A. At least I recognize the source for most of the components. Shimano 2200 hubs are one of their lower line components but even Shimano's cheap hubs are well made. SRAM cassettes (not freewheel) are also pretty good items.

    I have no idea what the quality "Formula" hubs or cassettes is or where they are made.

    Formula track hubs have a very decent reputation on the forums here. Cassettes - no idea.
