Assuming you could get them for about the same price, which would you choose, and why?
A little background: I'm a 250lb clyde looking to build a 36h rear wheel around either a Deep V or CXP33 rim. I'm looking for a hub that rolls well, but is also durable, decently sealed, easy to adjust, and has good flange spacing to build a strong wheel. Weight is less important.
I could just go with a 105 or Ultegra, but I'd like to try out something that doesn't require cone wrenches, like my Campy hubs. I don't mind spending a little more for bling, but Phil or King hubs are a little too dear. I was leaning towards a White H2/H3 (Cambria Bike carries the 36h drilling for $259), but Ribble Cycles right now is running a sale and I can get a 36h 7900 for probably around $230, shipped.
So has anyone had experience with the Dura-Ace FH-7900 freehub? Would you pay $40+ more for the White? I remember reading a review (unfortunately I can't find the link, maybe Velonews?) which detailed the bearing adjustment on the 7900, and as I recall it was more complicated than Campy, but the review was generally favorable.
