Another wheel question - Velomax v. Hugi Hubs(1 post)

Another wheel question - Velomax v. Hugi Hubswilier
Jun 23, 2002 9:21 PM
The never-ending question. What wheels to get.

My stats:

Locations - Los Angeles (lots of rides down PCH - mild to medium potholes in roads)
Weight - 145ish

I'm trying to get as light as I possibly can without sacrificing too much stiffness. There is a possibility I'll race on these wheels in the future (next season). Here are 2 options:

Option 1 - Hugi Hubs, Velocity Aeroheads, DT 15/16
Option 2 - Velomax Ascent Comps

Both will be around the same weight. Lets assume I can get them for equivalent prices ($400ish from Excel for the Hugi's, $400ish from eBay for the Velomax).

Can anyone tell me about the hubs? How long do they last, how easy is maintenance, how smooth are they?
