I am (almost) sure I saw someone advertising alloy Imp hubs.

Now I can't find it!

Anyone know more?

Peter,

Not weighed the steel OE ones, but I'm sure I saw this on a website. Unless I'm confusing it with alloy hubs made for something else, butr I don't think so....however reading the thread you cited, it seems pointless replacing the iron units as they are very light as standard.

Thanks!

I try to reduce unsprung weight where possible.

I stand to be corrected here, but I think Robin Human had some alloy ones machined up back in the day somewhen. He's not always the easiest person to tie down, but it may be worth a PM to tzarrobin on the forum.
