Everything about building wheels, glueing tubs, etc.

I was thinking of going somewhere along this route for my next wheel build. I haven't ever seen these laced to anything other than carbon rims and was wondering if the hub geo is suitable for shallower rims and also if they are durable enough for day to day use. I mainly just want something light and a little more exotic than my cheapie Bitex hubs to SL23s that gets me around 1350g without being compromised.

I am going to use these hubs for my next build and they will be laced to 38mm carbon/alu rim. Fairwheel Bikes has a review on the hubs, they recommend them for a daily use and give a thumbs up for quality. They did say that the new hubs have a sound similar to Chris King hubs.

Which rims? Just curious because I've never seen carbon/aluminum brake track as a rim only.

I use Carbon-Ti hubs on my MTB and they've held up fine. I put thicker grease in the freehub to quiet it.
Faraports sell carbon/alloy rims.

The shipping was fast, communication was excellent. I've been riding the wheels for about 6 months now (Tune Hubs, Sapim CX-Ray, Alu nipples), they are solid. 17 internal, 23 external. I ordered a second set. They will do custom drilling also. Cost was about $125 per rim. The cool part is they have a Twill finish which you normally do not see on a carbon/alu rim.

I found them here.
