I completed virtual wheels: American Classic 350 rims, Sapim CX Ray spokes (24 radial/28 2x) and Soul - Kozak hubs (52/168 gr).
Set weight: 1183 gr (514/669).
Rear Kozak hub have similar weight like Tune. Kozak are producing in my country, but in Poland are little of popular.
What can crack in that hub? The better choise is DT 240 S?
I'm lite guy - 65 kg. Kozak rear hub will be enough strong and durability?
I hope You know this hubs :)

I've heard of them, but know nothing about them. I can say that American Classic makes a pretty shoddy product that might not be that bad if you log a few racing miles on it per year, but it is not designed for training or foul weather.

Everytime this comes up, I have to ask: why bother? Just take another 60 or 80g of negligible, at-the-hub weight, and use Record or Dura Ace. Dura-Ace is now available in the drillings you want, and if you're on Campy, I don't really see any shame in using a 24h DA front hub and 28h Record rear. (I'm running DA 7800 cranks and Record/Chorus everything else!)
