Found quite a big difference. My Shimano Nexus is the SG-C3000-7R not SG-C30001-7R which would indicate mine is definitely older I would of thought although still many bikes sold now with SG-C3000's and you can buy the hubs on their own and still features in their current line up. Seems to be a steel hub case rather than aluminium of the C3001. No indication of strength difference on the Shimano technical papers and most parts appear to be the same so unlikely to be the cause of the weight difference. Both appear to be designs meant for roller brakes that can also be used with V brakes. The newer Nexus is about 100g lighter.
