Anyone know anything about these hubs? opinions? experiences?
weight front and rear?
loud?
smooth?
reliable?

I'm thinking of building up a standard mavic, 32 db spokes for everyday riding. How do they compare to the Dura Ace or ultegra.

Thanks

I believe that the Edco hubs can be found on the Spinergy R3 wheelset - a wheelset that is sold by Colorado Cyclist, Excel, and other mail order companies.

The Edco Olympic SL hubs are sweet. They are killer light and glide like you can't believe. I purchased a FiR Super Antara wheelset last year, and they came with these hubs.

They're Swiss and like Swiss watches are very expensive and very well made. They actually used to make a full line of components. Fir, Zipp and Spinergy all use Edco made hubs on their wheels.

I've got the Edco's on my SR-3's and I can tell you they are very smooth.they fly on the flats and are alittle quieter than my campy chorus hubs.
