OK, did I screw up again?
I had a wheelset built by a LBS with Velocity Deep V rims and Shimano Deore hubs. The builder gave me his opinions based on my Deep V recommendation. He said I should go with Shimano Deore high flange hubs (M-525 disc). I asked him if I should bump that up to LX or XT hubs for strength, and he said that the difference in strength and durability were minimal and that the higher priced LX and XT hubs were lighter and not necessarily stronger.
So, what are the differences in these three hubs? Is XT alot better than Deore? Is XT more expensive than Deore because of less weight? Should I have insisted on XT anyway?
