Fancy dan hubs vs Novatec hubs
So, I have a friend who's looking at getting a pair of Gucci wheels for the summer. Given that most hubs that don't fall into the budget category utilise industrial cartridge bearings (apart from Shimano, of course), are there any real advantages to buying, say, American Classic or DT Swiss over the likes of Novatec? Forged hub shells vs CNC'd? Better heat treatment or bearing housing tolerances? Anything like that?
