I'd like to build up a pair of lighter wheels with either 24/28 or 28/28 spoking. But, as I am planning on using Campagnolo EPS, I want to avoid having to readjust my gears every time.

I know DT hubs are slightly different, as well as being less than ideal in the bracing department, so they are out.

Any suggestions?

BHS/Bitex or White Ind. The Whites have better bracing angles but the BHS are not bad. Whites are heavier and more expensive than BHS.

28f would be a waste with 28r. The front is stiffer due to not having dish so needs fewer spokes.

Hope? Seems like they have finally got round to supporting Campag 11v.

White Industries T11, Royce low flange front and Venus rear, Hope.....

Campagnolo Record hubs maybe 32H but I have built sub 1435g wheelsets with these using Ryde Pulse Sprint rims (off set rear) and sapim laser spokes with alloy nipples. WI hubs on the same Ryde rims in 24F/28R would be 60g lighter now that pretty light.

Are the graphics just stickers or are they etched on?

Thanks

On which hubs. On the Royce hubs there are not stickers that far too tacky for Cliff.

Not the hubs, the rims. Won't be using Royce or Hope due to weight and noise respectively. Stuck between Record 32's and T11's in either 28/32 or 24/28.

Thanks

The logo's ae stickers on the ryde rims. Royce hubs are 435g for a pair so not too heavy.

Not a fan of Royce or King. Very expensive for not much benefit, IMO.

Enve 25 tubs on CK hubs rock: bulletproof! No flats over 3,000 miles (Conti Competition tubs) around London and Surrey).

You could just space out the cassette to match on each pair of wheels/hubs. Or juggle/adjust the hub axle spacing (And dish to suit)

I've been doing that on a couple of pairs of DT 240S hubbed wheels for a while. With mechanical it's OK but EPS would be a bit of a pain I think.

So here's what I propose for these wheels
Campagnolo Record hubs with CULT bearing upgrade
Ryde Pulse Sprint 32 rims with offset rear
Sapim Laser spokes 2x front 2x/3x rear with Prolock brass nipples

I weigh 76kg

Thoughts?

3x both side rear as it improves torsional stiffness. 3x front too why 2x on a 32H? standard nipples will be fine if you know how to build and tension a wheel properly. self locking nipples are a solution in seaerch of a problem never use them and all my wheels stay straight. Weight will be 1490g or something like that. It is a good build Done several of them.
