Last one for the day. Got the hub fitted and dry mounted. Laterally it’s bob on and roundy roundy there’s about 1mm run out. That’s better than either of my discs but I might just give it a fettle tomorrow and see if I can get it spot on before bonding it in.
Total weight is 1350g. Considering the rim is 500g of that and the hub 200g, it’s not actually turned out too heavy. I’d love to have a crack at a proper hollow disc in a mould, aero section and carbon hub. Can’t see why you couldn’t get a 700c size down near 600g. Pipe dreams...
Running quite short of time now, so I’ve really got to crack on with this if I want to get anything else built as well.
