Rather than start another 'what wheel/hub etc' thread I thought I would post here, if this is in the wrong place, sorry! Also tried searching but it wasn't working for some reason :noidea:

I am looking to build up a set of everyday training wheels as an xmas present from my GF :mrgreen: , so am looking for some advice on hub choice. I'm pretty sure I already have my heart set on a set of Ambrosio Nemesis rims.

What would you recommend hub wise? My budget for the hubs is ideally < £200 but will stretch out to £250 if it's worth it. I have been looking at Shimano Ultegra(heavy), Hope RS Mono(already have the previous generation which have been good) and Campagnolo Record(I use Sram so pretty sure these wont work, would love to be told otherwise as I think these are the ones I like most!). Are there any other hubs I should be looking at?

I am quite heavy at 95kg, so strength and reliability are fist, but light is always good if it can be included too! These wheels wont be raced on, I have carbon tubs for that, but will be ridden in all weathers.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Campbell.

Campagnolo hubs are only available in a Campag splined freehub design. However, you could buy a Campagnolo original HG freehub body and convert them.

Thanks for the reply. Is the Campagnolo freehub something like this?

http://www.probikekit.co.uk/bicycle-whe ... tAodOjcAUw

Is the fit fairly universal across all Campagnolo hubs? I have never really dealt with Campagnolo before, so sorry for what may seem like a daft question!

If you are running SRAM 22, I hear the Campy hub with Campy 11 cassette will work fine with SRAM 11 speed

I'm running Sram 10 speed, so not an option unfortunately.

The record 11 speed freehub comes with a 1.85mm spacer so it will take a 10 speed cassette. Given I supply/stock these hubs with a shimano freehub body already fitted I have pm'd you. Perfect hubs by the way.

@jbaillie- What a great build! Have you had a chance to log some miles yet? How do you like those rims? Great choice on the hubs by the way!

Thanks Zen, yes I rode most of this season on them and they're sublime!

Jooo yep they're the wider ones. Awesome in corners.

Any good source for Ti spokes. I fancy trying some in a silly light build.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the wider ones should say "Belgium +" and not "Belgium".

Belgium + = 25mm wide

Belgium = 23mm wide

I'm curious too. My next build (only front wheel) will be matching a Farsports 20mm rim(16H) to a M5 straight-pull front hub, with CN Aero424 spokes. If only I can get hold of those elusive titanium bladed straight-pull spokes to maximize the silly factor! (As if a shallow front wheel to match the 38mm rear was not laughable enough...:lol: )

Built these up today. I got them as samples, thinking of buying more. The first ride out tonight was really good the rims are 25mm wide and 50mm deep. I built the up 20 spoke front and 24 spoke rear with Miche Primato hubs of that drilling (I have to get these from the factory) and CX-rays. Weight 1650g which is not bad given the weighty hubs I have used. The braking is good and the ride well wow. The 23mm tyres on the bike now measure up at 26mm. Rim bed is smooth with no visible porosity, the weight of the two rims was within 2g, and the build was even tensioned as was with 0.2mm round and 0.1mm wobble. Pretty good rims.

I am putting 80mm conti tubes in tomorrow as those extenders are too long.
