Ok, I wasn't aware that the Novatech track hubs were of poor quality. I thought they were on a par with Formula hubs.
Here's a picture of the rear I'm planning to use:
And the front hub:
The front hub I already have on my current wheelset and performs just fine and has a good finish.
Also, I do not consider XR-300 rims a cheap component, they are certainly of equal or better quality than say a Mavic CXP 33 (which is more expensive)
I should have said fixed gear wheelset instead of track, they will only be ridden on the road. Also, the XR-200 wheelset I have is a 32/28 combo, so doesn't directly compare I suppose.
The wheels will be laced 2 cross front and rear, possibly 3 cross on the rear depending on spoke length availability.
