Don't forget to take a look at some of the old "MTB" bolt-on hub options as well. You know that is where a lot of bmx companies are getting their inspiration for some of the new lightweight femaled hubs they are selling these days. (Including Eject option and early Tree protos, which was lightly based on an XC mtb hub I think).
I just scored this cool little hub at a recent swap meet too. Nice big hollow alu. axle, hollow flush bolts, and matching cone spacers too. Very clean. It was actually a NOS "echo" product apparantly.
second the madera and maybe some ti bolts if ya want to get crazy.
nice find dave!
That thing is amazing, I must find something along the lines of it in the same color..
it may not be the lightest but I'm really digging the mini race...
the mini race, coalition is good, demo M-K, whatever. a couple ounces isnt going to kill you
I quite like the Gsport ones. Very strong but may not be as light as you wish for.
I'll take strength over light weight anyday. (within reason)
demo M-K is well nice
Hah... no ****. I dont believe that is "NOS" persay... The new ones look identical. Echo is a company that makes trials products... hubs, frames, bars, etc. You can probly still get a similar hub nowadays as welll > http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/category.php?id=86
Oh.. and all of the companies like Adamant, Czar, ZOO!, GU, and Echo are all the same exact company... They just bring different designs of each product to the table. The stuff is virtually bombproof. I'm not sure if you can find those hubs in the US, maybe try webcyclery if you dont want to ship it from overseas.

Oh Wow yeah, that green one is exactly like mine! I scored mine for $10 though, nice! The guy at the table at the swap meet just said he was clearing out new old stock parts and had it up there... had no idea it was still in production or a new model.
And yeah, I know what Echo is, I had an Echo "Urban" stock trials bike a number of years back, with a PX Knifen lite fork and threshold bash, etc...
I'm not as much a fan of those higher-flange hubs...
...but seriously, I gotta ask, why are some of those assymmetrical??? There are no disc mounts as far as I can see... Are they designed to be built with ridiculous dish or something? ...like the Czar and Adamant, they have relieved flanges on one side only... ???
I can see they ALL have the same bolts and flush spacers too, I'm betting they all use the same axle, or at least dimensions and thread pitch there.
I don't think that the hub's flanges are assymmetrical, but Its obvious the milling on the hubshells is. There is no reason to have a dished front wheel for HS-33's/vee's. I am positive they are running the same axle, bearings, and bolts... All of the companies are joint together by a guy that runs the factory in Asia. Although they were once **** products, they have been proven to be very durable and worth the money
what size dropout does this echo hub fit into?
so im going to get either a vandero 2, the simple eject (could look nasty matched with the red runaway, wtp supreme, demo mary kate, madera, or see if i can hunt down a dirtro for the knight hasselhub. just saw it on danscomp. thing looks super slick
why dont you go 32 hole???
