actually they are not for sale, they come as custom made dura ace hubs by Dreamworks Mr. Adachi.

the good thing is, everyone can have them. well, if you own dura ace hubs... (credit to Mr. Adachi who told me how)

remove the plastic caps with a knive (gentle they are glued on) get rid of the black paint with fine sandpaper and paint/design them how ever you like...

Mr. Adachi is the best... and his eddy is just awsome: http://lh6.ggpht.com/_cSahp0rtbrc/SoFh2jo21vI/AAAAAAAAAMo/UkQlqllxfqI/s512/web.jpg

Thanks for the info Steffen. I edited the post bit, in order not to misinform people too much. ;)

Thanks Jussi!
Now everyone is emailing me...''why do you not sell the blue hubs?!'' ha ha....

Yes best to do these yourself...like Steffen said. Use a hairdryer to loosen up the plastic plate a bit first.
