I hope you can give me some advice; I have a set of DT 1540 wheels with a bend rear rim but perfect hubs; I also have bought some Notubes Alpine rims.
All in 28 whole configuration.
I am about 68 kg plus gear.
This is for my Anthem X, I have another bike for more AM stuff. So normal XC trail, but plenty of roots (lots of pine)!
I wonder if a set can be built on the hubs, that will be strong enough for "everyday" use?
What spokes would you choose? Alu or brass nipples (my wheelsmith says that alu will become impossible to work on after some time due to corrosion)?.
The alternative is to drop it and build a set on Chris King/Arch EX in 32H, but if what I can can be made stron enough, I would prefer that solution of course. Way lighter + cheaper since I have the parts.
What do you think? Plenty strong? Build spec advice?
Hope you will help
Best regards, Morten
