Has anyone built these SP hubs with two different types of spokes on the rear (radial on NDS and 2x on DS)? Specifically a stronger spoke for DS and a thin spoke for NDS. If so, how did it turn out and how does the wheel compare to other wheels with a different lacing pattern (e.g. 2x/2x)? Lastly, anyone tried the 24H/28H version instead of the more common 20H/24H? Thanks!

Maybe try cx-ray on DS and super cx-ray on the front wheel and NDS side.

I haven't tried it but I'd like to.

CX-ray all round. This differential spoking is pointless. if you building light wheels they still need to be stiff. Differential spoking only reduces lateral, radial and torsional stiffness.
2.0mm max spoke diameter at the head.

Wheels with these hubs are laterally stiffer than 2x/2x lacing but the hub geometry dictates that mostly.

the 24F/28R hub are the same just more spokes.

have you ever tried building with super spokes - don't lifes to short.

Consider giving Fairwheel Bikes a ring @ (520) 884-9018

They're selling and building Carbon-Ti hubbed wheels.

Crazy knowledgeable bunch.

Maybe (very) slightly off topic, but do any of you have experience with Carbon-Ti's hubs for J-bend spokes? Straight pull can be a hassle to source if you need a replacement in a bind, but I wasn't sure if their J-bend models maintain the strong points that the straight pull models aparently have.

+1

i had two sets of wheels from them built around these hubs. love them. they used two different spoke types on the rear for the set built with Ryde Pulse Sprint rims to help with stiffness because the rim was super light alloy.
