Looks great! Very sensible build......the finish on 105 is very nice, it looks great with the frame!!
Question though.....I thpough KinLin rims took the red veloplugs? I have some XR300's and I ordered red plugs, hope they fit when they come in!!!
hello!! thanks for the compliments, bike is not finished yet although it already drives pretty well, but I´m now in the process of sharpening those details that will make it perfect and completely fitted for me.
My kimlins are the XR200. I was told to use the red Veloplugs, I ordered them and they did not fit. I measured the rim holes with a digital micrometer and found out that the yellow ones would fit perfectly. I ordered the yellow ones and they worked perfectly. I don't know the hole diameter of the XR300 Kimlin rim, I suggest just to measure them properly and order the ones that would fit better according to Veloplug website specifications.
I´m concerned with the spoke lacing pattern I used for my rear wheel. Right now it's 3 crosses on both sides, and because the non-drive side spokes wing has a much smaller diameter than the one on the drive side, the spoke tension on the drive side is very very high, while the spoke tension on the non drive side is kind of weak, therefore the wheel stiffness is not good enough. I was wondering if I could improve this situation by switching the non-drive side to a radial spoke lacing pattern... Any tip on this issue would be highly appreciate it. I think I should have bought the rear hub that has spoke wings of the same diameter and more symmetric, but it's too late for that...
