WTB Laserdisc Lite/American Classic Disc hubs?

  1. I've heard both really really good things and really really bad things about the American
    Classic Disc hubs. WTB licensed their design (its pretty much an exact copy), and is selling
    them for a lot less.

    My main question is durability. I can't afford to have a hubset die on
    me. I'm only 135lbs, probably won't get about 150lbs for a long time, so my weight really isn't too
    much of an issue.

    They are the new ones without the grease-port, they had a bunch of problems with those.

    Any other suggestions of hubs around the same price range? (IE, about 375 built up with mavic 317s
    or dt swiss disc rims and doublebutted dt swiss spokes)

    Thanks!

    If you can't afford to have a hub fail on you, get Shimano. They are cheaper, and usually
    better too.
