For better or for worse

Proper's female front hub is officially out. That is, IMG distro got them today.
For better or for worst Proper has pretty much held the "light weight bmx hub crown" for the last few years, but the weight of these things - ridiculous.

184 grams apparently.

To put that in perspective, a Shimano 6500 Ultegra front road bike hub weighs in at an obese 198 grams. If you think about it a pair of lycra bike pants must weigh at least a couple of hundred grams less than a pair of jeans - you see where I'm going with this?
