I am treating my self. I have always wanted to try a proper 2:1 laced wheelset but with a hubset made for it not a standard hub but the BHS hub is just a standard hub with a different drilling pattern so that's out. The whole point of 2:1 lacing is that the NDS flange can be moved a long way out and still good NDS tension is achieved.
If you 2:1 lace with a standard hub with heads out lacing NDS you are actually reduce the flange to centre of hub distance a bit thus reducing the NDS bracing angle and given there are only half the number of spokes on that side now the wheel stiffness drop compared to a convential lacing pattern. Hardly optimal which is why I don't like 2:1 laced wheels when I see them on here much.
There is no hub on the market which does what I want it to do so I had one made. This is a special they normally do not make hubs this way or to the dimesnion below.
Royce Ti/carbon hubs. They are not light with the lockring they are 437g but I think that O.K. Thay have Ti flanges, Ti hub Ti everything, carbon shell and NTN 6001 bearings.
the PCD is 45mm for the rear and the centre flange to centre hub is 17mm/46.45mm. Given the NDS will be laced radial heads out the tension balance will be 80% not huge for this lacing pattern but high enough. The NDS bracing angle will be just over 9 degrees which means a very stiff wheel indeed.
The rims I will use a Pacenti SL23 with the rear being the centre drilled version curtosy of BHS- I am glad they have them.
All in all I am looking forward to doing these. These are hubs for life quite literally.
Final wheelset weight with CX-rays will be 1540g ish which is light enough for me.
