Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Tune hubs or White Industry hubs?

Does anyone have experiences with Tune hubs and/or White Industry hubs? I am looking for a new set of hubs, and am wondering if Tune hubs are worth the extra money. I am not a weightweenie and I am just searching for quality hubs that are durable. Is there other hubs that I should think about? I heard that Chris King and Phil Wood also make good hubs, but as far as I know Chris King is not campy compatible and Phil Wood is not 10spd compatible. Thanks in advance

Tune hubs have an excellent reputation here in Europe. I have DT Swiss, only because I got a special deal. I would otherwise be riding Tune.

Alchemy is all you need. Or Extralite if you're feeling ******. But White Industries will do just fine.

Shimano. Just space it Campy or use a Shiftmate or something.
