DA or Ultegra Hubs?(2 posts)

DA or Ultegra Hubs?JoeKlein

I'm building up a set of Open Pros (28 hole radial front; 32 hole 3x drive, radial non-drive). Do you think it's worth the $50 bucks to spring for the Dura-Ace hubs over the Ultegra?

The Ultegra hubs work great. Functionally, you won't have a problem with them, and probably can't tell a difference from Dura-ace when riding. The finish on the D/A stuff is nicer though. If you ever want to sell the wheelset, the D/A will be easier to sell. Also ask yourself if you will be temped to upgrade later if you don't go with the top shelf stuff now. If re-sale and the urge to upgrade aren't issues with you, save a couple of bucks and get the Ultegra.
