I think I paid a little less at Spicer Cycles (he built me a rear wheel around the ENO and a Velocity Escape tubular rim, and I don't know if I have an itemized bill, but I think the hub price was 129 or something).

Do you have a weight for the ENO/escape/ rear wheel? And what spokes did you use?
Thanks
I didn't weigh it--it's a reasonably light rim. I went with 32 holes and Wheelsmith double butted spokes--you could use lighter (or heavier) ones if you want. He doesn't stock too many spoke options, or didn't seem to, but can order anything.

found my answer "The advertised weight is 224 grams (135mm w/o bolts). That's plenty light."
from cyclingnew.com product/tech review
http://www.cyclingnews.com/tech.php?id=tech/2004/reviews/white_ind_eno_eccentric_hub

FYI record rear hub w/ QR: 316g
dura ace rear hub : 328g
overall weight is about 90-100g less. For me, that drops my Ambrosio F20, record, DT rev 32/3x from 1405g down to lucky 1313g
must have this, just waiting to hear back from spicer.

bike parts are marked up about 100%.......

im seriously thinking of starting a bike company.. ordering parts and selling to certian people for only a small profit margin..
I can guarantee they are not marked up 100%, if they were I would be making alot more money. Most mail order places have the parts marked up between 15 to 35%.

Ligero, who's the US dist for Ambrosio? Also what happend to ambrosio, they have seemed to fade away...
They are still around but they do not have much of any US representation. I have been getting them from a distributor that I also get Alex rims from. He does not carry the entire line but he does have most of the good rims, Excellight, F20, Excersion, ect.
