I would prefer 6800 over 5800. I have a set of both. The 6800 is more polished and is not much more money. Cone adjustment is digital.

I would use campagnolo record and fit a shimano body as they are lighter and have bearing cups ghat can be replaced.

Maybe a whacky question. Instead of throwing out the whole Campagnolo Proton front wheel (with busted rim) is it advisable/doable to use the 22-hole hub with a 20-hole rim? I'm thinking that the radial spokes may not be perfectly lined up but it shouldn't be too out of whack stress-wise for the rim and the hub (with 2 unused holes), no?

IN my youth I did all my own bike maintenance. The only thing I didn't have any luck with was fixing buckled wheels. So when I got back into cycling and seen people were building their own wheels I couldn't resist. Started last week with

Ultegra 6800 hubs,
DT Swiss BD spokes,
DT Swiss R460 rims.
And Roger Musson's book.

Built the front and got a very pleasing result. I am hooked now.

Not wacky.. one could 'get by' .. something for a rain day/winter slop bike in my world. One could go 18H rim and space the missing holes equally side to side.. say 12-3-6-9 o'clock positions.

It has been a while since I asked about building my first set of wheels. The rear took me about 12 hours and then the front about 6 hours, but I am really happy with the result.

Spoke length help.

Going to build 36h 3 cross Ryde Sputnik 700c using Shimano 7 speed cassette RM40 rear.

Don't have the components to measaure but want to get the spokes in quickly.

Anyone built previously and can inform me spoke lengths?

(if you are a UK trade wheel builder I will buy the spokes (Sapim or Dt Swiss silver double butted) from you if you answer)).

Thanks.

Found 2 different ERD's for this rim; 600 and 607.
Might have to physically measure yourself to be sure.
For 607 i calculated @ L293.8 R292.7
and for 600 L290.3 R289.2

I'm looking at either building a set of CX wheels on the new open pros or buying a set of Zipp course 30 disc. My frameset has 12x100 and 142x12 thru axles. I'm actually amazed at how many hubs are not offered in 12x100 for the front. I was debating finding hubs that I could change to 15x100 (on the front) for use on my MTB for some of the more aggressive gravel races in the area.

Does anyone have any recommendations?

Dt 350, Hope Pro, Sram 900 are all quality budget options with interchangeable end caps for 12mm, 15mm, or qr. Dt 240 or White Ind if you want to spend more money.

I'm looking to build some training wheels, I'm eyeing up a Kinlin XR31T kit from BDop, but need some solid resources for building road wheels. I did build a few BMX wheels back in my early teens, but its been a quite a while since.. Do you guys have and guides or resources you recommend? 20H/24H, Radial Front, 2x Rear.

I have to replace 6 of 24 spokes (half on one side, 2x lacing both side)
Currently all spokes are bladed with 2.2x0.95 center section
Is it ok to replace 6 spokes with wider blade section 2.3x1.5?
tension should be the same, nothing special about that?

But why would you do that? Do you have problems sourcing the right ones?

I bought and like the Professional Guide to Wheel Building e-book by Roger Musson.
