    Is there any reason (other than weight) not to use a MTB front hub on a road bike? I picked up a Deore XT front hub for $5 brand new, and the maillard hub on my bike has seen better days. The hub is 32 spoke, so i'm assuming I could just build it with a road rim and be ok.

    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
