Nice work on putting these together. Good call on getting someone else to build them up.

Someone tell me how it is possible to assess durability of a hub by photos and yeah.... 'stiff' hubs?

Hubs don't look stiff or durable at all. I would fail to enjoy such a wheel.


No complaints as yet about stiffness or durability.

Your wife may be unable to say the same.

That was a joke for those lacking a sense of humour

Thanks. In retrospect I should have got matching 50mm rims so will probably end up building a new front, a fraction less weight weenie, maybe with a Hope or Chris King front hub on a 16H rim. Will keep the 20mm for those "I want my bike below the UCI limit" days.

You are obviously pretending to be my wife.

why not use DT spokes? Planet x rims are some of the nastiest on the market, for a little more you could get a much better rim.


I did use DT spokes

Remember they used to be the rim that formed the F2R FFWD wheelset, which had a much higher price point.

I've heard of some people abusing the hell out of them & then complaining about the rim not holding up too well, but its kinda a fit for purpose, purpose specific type of rim imo.


These rims seem to be used even for cross wheels

Replacing the front rim with a 50mm to match rear. Unsure whether to go 16h or 24h. Obviously the former is lighter but the 50mm rim isn't really a WW choice anyway. thoughts?

Will go w either Hope Pro3 or Chris King r45 hub and DT revs

16, but it depends entirely on your weight and riding style.

Then I'd go with the lighter option, personally.
