What are your thoughts on the WI H2/H3 being too extreme in its angle to get great tension? Anything to watch out for here? I can envision saving some serious $ and doing WI wheel set on SL23's. Otherwise its CKR45's and a lighter pocket book.

@bostonbull- I assume you mean the T11s? The H3 had better flange spacing on paper than the T11 rear but from what I can tell it has made no real world difference. The only downside of the Whites is the weight. But 30 or so extra grams in the hubs isn't going to be noticeable beyond placebo.

For the price of Chris King, get Alchemy UL. If you go with T11 hubs, up the rear spoke count 4 and lace them cross on the drive side and radial heads out on the NDS. Use a heavier gauge spoke on the drive side as well. That's how I've been building that rim/hub combo.

Thanks!

When those UL's hit, will they have that odd bearing in them and be "hard to service" as I have heard is complaint on the ORC?

I read an article from Rt Wheelcraft that said they will be easier to service. All though since I haven't seen them in person yet I cant really say for sure. Time will tell!

Does anyone know specs or costs yet?

I have 2 decisions here (besides aesthetics). I know I am doing a Pacenti 23 rim front and rear, that part was easy.

1. Do I save $ and go with WI hubs front and rear? Do Alchemy or CK because they are worth the large uptick in price over WI? Mismatch them with ELF in front and a WI outback?

2. Spokes. I know I will get a better wheel set with blades because the wheel builder can if the spokes are twisting vs. round spokes. But are they worth 3x the cost? Will the benefits be realized in THAT much better of a wheel set, and will I notice anything else while riding between round & bladed?



Anyone have pics of custom wheel colors on a black Tarmac? Im thinking red hubs might pop and red nipples? otherwise I'll just black it out.

@boston bull- You will see no real world difference between the T11s and R45s or Alchemys. The only downside is the extra 30 grams, and if you can get over that part, they are preferable in almost every aspect. Quality is easily in the same league as its more expensive counterparts, and the White would be easier to service than both the Kings and Alchemys.

Regarding the spokes, just go with a round option. Cxrays are nice, but Lasers will yield the same ride quality.

I can get rid of those 30 grams with skewers later on, or nicer spokes possibly!

How loud are the WI? Are they like CK Classics by chance?

You feel confident that I wont have a less than stellar wheeelset if I don't go bladed?

Lasers are the round spoke you would recommend?

The T11s are pretty darn quiet. They are a totally different sound than the Classics too.

Yes this are Bartime hubs - i will have one road wheelset 60mm tubular - when i will get more real world info i can share here.
Hubs are really nice done and 5 bearings in rear run really smooth - front also

Hi kavitator, what hubs are you comparing these hubs too?
What spoke lacing did you use on the tubs?
thanks KL :)

hello
lacing is normal - i just go did with 24 rear - 2x on both sides. For left flange spokes insert you must remove left flange - easy job(5min). Those hubs has 17mm aluminium axle, beraing bed supported with steel rings, and beraings (5 sealed in rear) run very very smooth.
Spoke holes on flange are tighter than others (enouhg big for CX Rays) - so you cant put washers under spoke head :)

tension ratio is nothing special - i get 125kg on DS and 55-65kg on NDS. But shorter spokes becouse of bigger flange on DS do a good job to better stiffnes (spokes on DS are 276mm, on NDS 290mm).

I have a question for H+SON ARCHETYPE rims - what will be max spoke tenison - can i go with 130kg on DS?

Cheers

Hi kavitator, thanks for the information. Yes, 125kg DS and 55-65kg NDS (NDS tension ratio of 44% to 52%) is nothing special is it, but 17mm aluminium axle, etc sounds good :)

Have you noticed if the 2 piece hub has affected stiffness or responsiveness in anyway ...

Sorry I can't help you with H+SON ARCHETYPE rims, although I have seen mentioned 120kgf front and 130kgf rear ... hope this is helpful :)
