So, my sad story for this weekend: during servicing, discovered that my rear DT R1.1 rim has numerous cracks at the eyelets. I have a pair of C24s for nice days and weekends, but am following the "race what you can replace" mentality and my intention was to get a pair of wide clinchers for training/racing/winter.
So, it looks like I have two options:
1. Re-lace the DT240s I have on Sapim Race spokes to Pacentis. Lacing will be 2x all around. Cost is about $275 for two rims, spokes, and rim tape. Should build up around 1470g.
2. BHS is currently clearing out old stock Pacentis and I can get a set laced 20/24 to their SL85/210 hubs on CX-Rays for $425 and should build up to around 1400g. If I sell my DT240s (looks like I can expect around $200 for the set on eBay), the cost is about the same as option #1, but I have to deal with selling the hubs, which isn't a guarantee.
About me: I'm 130lb in-season and don't think I've ever topped 135lb off-season. I'm located in the PNW, so I can't afford to be a fair-weather rider. These things will be ridden year round, so I'm also concerned about hub durability. Then again, bearings aren't super expensive, so it's probably not a huge deal if I have to replace them every spring.
Lots of climbing here in BC, but the minor difference in weight probably isn't going to mean that much. I guess it comes down to hub quality? Would appreciate any thoughts here.
