I have read both the good and bad reports regarding CK hubs but very little about Carbon Ti's

Anyone here use them and have any thoughts??

    You after bling or some decent hubs?

    I recently had a set of wheels built and considered the hubs you mentioned.

    In the end I went with Dura Ace hubs on the basis that:

    A. They are a known quantity
    B. I expect them to be durable
    C. No special tools needed for maintenance

    Although the DA hubs are certainly not light weight compared to some hubs you can buy, from what I can make out weight at the hub matters the least compared to rim weight.
