I'm building up a new bike with Chorus. I can upgrade to Record hubs for an extra $35 or so. Any thoughts? I did notice that Record is heavier than Chorus (497g versus 406g).
weights are wrong...C-40

Record is a bit lighter than Chorus due to a Ti pawl carrier. The posted weight is incorrect.

The only good reason to upgrade to Record is if you want 28 hole hubs, which are not available in chorus.

The Record hubs also have an oiler hole but other than the kool factor, they aren't worth paying extra.
