Is anyone making aluminum rear hubs

I have check a few places and no luck. I figured lonestar would make some but from what I hear they are staying away from the 700xx alltogether(WTF?). Does anyone know if anyone is making aluminum rear hubs or even has plans to?

Do you have any other mods? Whats wrong with your stock hubs?

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

I believe member Baxter may have used 450r hubs. Just FYI, Honda mentioned they used the iron hubs for greater strength needed with the XX's weight and power. You will virtually see no performance gains either.

Anybody know how much lighter a comprable sized set of aluminum ones would be?

figure out the mass off the iron ones (put em in water and see what they displace) and then find the weight per mass of aluminum and X that by what you found the mass of the iron ones to be?

seems like that would work... didnt we do that in science class at some point in time?
