I've priced out RAD hubs, and they have been a site supporter at times.

I also discovered Haan hubs, which may be lighter, stronger and mo betta. They are made in Holland from 6082, which is the new 6061. Similar material breakdown and cost, but about 10-15% better mechanical properties across the board. They use Excel rims, which is obviously good. Pro Circuit recently started distributing them, but the flat-hatted mouth breather I talked with at their HQ on the phone today told me if it's not on their web site, please GFM.

Anyone have any experience with Haan hubs? Know if they make the TE610 application?
Won't a rear wheel from a 2000 model 610 fit? The 2000 to 2003's for sure had cush rear drive hubs.
