    ..in snapping (breaking) all the spokes on my wheel ready for my new wheels - hubs being built on new rims... due to the trouble they've gave me (never ever buy or acquire a pair of raleigh 'handbuilt' wheels :rolleyes:)

    And eventually the rims (mavic opensport) I took off ~ to be built on any hubs I can find cheap...

    Are higher end hubs compared to Tiagra - lighter :biggrin:

    I think the top end ones will be lighter Yenners, but the costs will almost certainly be greater in proportion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yep, yenners, Raleigh wheels are the worst built in the world IMO. Had a pair with a Carlton I bought years ago, I couldn't take a corner without a spoke going PING!! :biggrin::angry::angry:

    I have Tiagra hubs on my Audax bike and they have given me many years of trouble free riding. I have never had to adjust them after the initial set up.
