I need a 40 or 20 hole hub to build up a 20 hole rim - are there any inexpensive ones out, like a 40 hole Ultegra for tandems? It isn't worth spending money on a custom drilled King or something like that. Thanks.

The closest thing I could find is DA 24 hole hubs.

There are plenty of 40 hole tandem hubs, but they are going to have high flanges, weigh at least 100 grams more and have 140 dropout spacing. Prices start at about DA level.

American Classic makes a 20 hole front hub and a 20 hole rear hub that is Campy and or Shimano compatible. Our front hub weighs in at 68 grams and our rear weighs in at 230 grams. They retail for 100 front and 200 for the rear. Call us at 1-800-813-5545 if you have questions.
