Does anyone have any experience or feedback regarding these hubs which are available on Ebay? ... 20cdbd5ccc

Thoughts please....

    Many of these hubs are made by Chin Haur - also sold as Dati and Rotaz. Built-up some CX wheels with a pair of Rotaz hubs and they've been fine. Don't expect them to last forever, but at the fraction of a cost of DT or Chris Kings, who cares. If you're worried about durability, go for Novatec Superlight ones.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • These are Bitex hubs. I have mixed experiences... Some have been fine, while some front ones were defective ( faulty hub shell). When you buy from eBay in china forget about return/refund.
    You can take a risk... At the end of the day Strada wheels sell them for 120 a pair, I seem to recall? As above, novatec hubs are more reliable
