I bought ( couldn't resist price :mrgreen: ) set of DT 240 white hubs ( "limited " :lol: ) 28F & 28R. Initially I planned to build cx wheelset , but have already 3 so… BUT , current thought is carbon tubulars for road, based on Farsports rims ( 23mm wide) . Question is : how (not)deep profile sounds reasonable for such spoke count, and considering my dimensions ( 182cm, 90kg) , to not go "to light" …. 38mm ? 30 ?

38? I think 50mm would look too chunky with the 28 spokes.

Between 28 and 40mm sounds good yeah. Depth above would look overbuilt for the front wheel but why not a 50mm rear wheel. May be 38 front 50 rear.

Had same idea, but 50mm and 28 spokes will not look odd ?

For now ( its not constatnt ;) ) i'm closest to 38 f+r ...

Rear 50 + 28 spokes will look overbuilt but at 90 kilos I would not mind

I had 50mm 24 spokes (20 f ) without any issues, so …. for 38 advantage is I can use it later on CX bike.. 50 is "overkill" for cx.

Next issue is front lacing- radial ? 2x ?

My track wheels are 90mm 32h 2x and I don't see a "chunky" issue. 28h radial for the front will be a huge pain in the ass though ;)

May I ask why "...28h radial for the front will be a huge pain in the ass though " ?

38mm deep carbon rims would be plenty stiff enough for you stormur. I did a set of 38mm deep carbon tubular disc brake wheels for my wife on dt hubs, they look fine. Those white hubs are not common.

My mtb 29er wheel uses 24mm wide 27mm deep carbon tubular rim in 28H laced up with sapim lasers. These are very stable and very stiff.

I get set in price of front one ;) have to utilize them somehow.

2nd ( 15th ;) ) idea is to build 28-28 on HED C2 rims ( Front +NDS Revolutions , DS DT Comp's ) , or even buy another 240 front for 24h , but have some doubts concerning durability of 24F on DT Rev's… Till now build on Comp's and DT Aerolite's . No issues whatsoever , even more - wheel hold perfectly. Now want "non-aero" ;) - like more wheels on round spokes.
