    Ultegra hubs: 6500 vs. 6600

    Does anyone know the difference between Ultegra 6500 hubs and 6600 hubs? I've found (what I think is) a good deal on some 6500s, but I want to know what if I'm missing anything.

    The flange is deeper on the freehub body. That's why 9-speed cassettes won't fit on a 6600 hub.
    I will never step foot inside another Bicycle Garage Indy as long as I live! They don't honor their advertised prices. Screw 'em.

    Wrong...not on ultegras. There is no practical difference between a ultegra 9 and 10 speed.

    I donít mean to hijack this thread but I have a relatively new Ultegra Hub that I purchased mail order (Ultegra/OP wheel). The cone on the non-drive side appears to be slightly crooked or not quite flush. The wheel seems to spin OK and again it is new. Is it possible the shaft is bent or maybe the product was not precisely made? Any ideas?
