I packed all my racing stuff up when I went in the Army. Nine years later I pulled it all out, and broke axles on three 126mm spaced Campy hubs, and one Shimano 600. I raced under 170 lbs, and was 185 when I started riding the stuff again.

Shimano, Suntour Sealed and Phil Wood hubs solved the problem for me.
