"cheap ass miche's"

you've been surfing the hype sites too much.

Miche's are great hubs. Even better that they dont cost an arm and a leg to get, and pieces and bearings are widely available.

miches are pretty much the next step down from phil, paul, or dura ace. there's not a whole lot of options between them. dura ace hubs tend to be a bit cheaper than phil hubs or paul hubs, but not by much. pick up a used set of phils if you want that quality at a cheaper price. replacement bearings for them are cheap, so you can have a pair that functions like new for a lot cheaper if you pick up a used pair and replace the bearings.

Formula hubs with Phil Wood bearings pressed in.

Formula hubs are awesome if your on a budget. Super reliable, cheap price

I have always had Phil Wood hubs, but my new wheel set has Miche front/rear, I love them. seriously best bang for you buck is for sure.

my buddy is rocking a set of tbs to formulas from velomine and they are solid, classy and run smooth. for 189 for a wheelset cant really go wrong. i mean use whatever hubs you want, if you have the money buy nice well made hubs, if not get some formulas or novatecs...

miches are not great. weak finishing especially in the lockring and general threading. also bottom brakets are shit.

as you live in the us you have an opton to benefit from the weak euro and mayhaps get mack hubs from poland. superlight and such.

if going fixed i'd go for phil though. they're worth the money.

ALL CITY SHERIFF. It is HALF the cost of the Phil Wood and uses the same design so that it's function and weight are very comparable. I'm actually running them myself right now on some H+Plus Sons. Check em out. http://www.treefortbikes.com/product/333222400360/1464/All-City-New-Sheriff-32h.html?gclid=Cj0KEQjw6OOoBRDP9uG4oqzUv7kBEiQA0sRYBNwSsV8NP14y_7pZrF-Jt40_mSvW30TM90HgfDLocAQaAtTf8P8HAQ

Sealed bearing formulas or novatecs work great without the name brand.

I'll second the all city new sheriffs. Had a set built up for under $500. I prefer them to my phil's laced to archetypes.

Surprised to see that no one has mentioned Suzue hubs yet.

Or Sansin or Suntour Superbe or Dura-Ace or Campagnolo.
I'm get some black TB14 laced to Sansin or Suntour hubs, because not many people ride them.
