If you going to the extent of saving weight with a ti hub,its only 200g lighter.you can change so many parts out before the ti comes into play.but when you have exhausted all lighter options eg-tires,pedals,seat,seat post,frame and cranks you might have to spend big to for minimal weight.personally im waiting for the exceed hub to come out as im not a fan of the kh.
thats right.
the cheapest way to save weight is to use a lighter tube - but at the end if you did all the cheap things you will change the hub, frame or what else.

and you have the mental factor - even if there is non or just a small physical benefit, you will get better results in the awareness to use the best material
