I wouldn't pay $160 for a VO hub either, I think it was somewhere between $70 and $75. I was more interested in building up a set of wheels for a rider and wanted to use new components.

I have never broken a spoke while touring but I have broken an axle on a 126mm OLN Specialized 36h low flange hub. Broken axles worry me more than broken spokes.
