  • Anyone have expierence with the cheaper "fancy" spoke tension meters off alie?

  • Looking to build some wheels for new audax type build. Anyone know of (or have) carbon disc rims in 32hole drilling that are readily available?

  • Any 650b 28h carbon rim recommendations?
    Thinking of replacing the rims on the Slate.

  • Any 650b 28h carbon rim recommendations?

    LB pro group buy? https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/1853­41/?offset=9575

  • I’d be up for it, just need to know exactly what I need.

  • I have a pair of old Campag Zondas that have dead rims. Can I reuse the hubs with another rim/spokes? The wheels have an unusual lacing pattern with the official rims.

    Otherwise I expect replacement Zonda rims are nearly the same price as a whole new wheelset?

  • yes, should be possible to rebuild the hubs to another rim. are they straightpull or traditional j-bend spokes and is it this freaky G3 lacing ? and replacement rims shouldn't be the same price as a whole wheelset but what do I know

  • replacement rims shouldn't be the same price as a whole wheelset

    But they usually are with Shimano/Campag factory wheels, as is the case with many spare parts. Whole things get big discounts, parts don't.

    Re-rimming factory wheels is nearly always more trouble than it's worth, and in the case of G3 Campags all the more so as you have to get custom drilled rims

  • yes, the G3 makes it even more difficult to find matching rims, unfortunately.

  • Looking for some help selecting my next hubs for the LB rims I'm getting for my Isen Audax bike. The front will be a SONdelux dyanmo

    28H Centerlock, shimano 11sp freehub.

    My short list is:

    1. Hope RS4
    2. DT Swiss 350
    3. DT Swiss 240exp
    4. White Industries CLD

    For me I need the ability to convert the rear to 135 QR for the back of the Isen. Being able to replace DS spokes without a tool (i.e. able to take off the freehub).

    Any thoughts / pros / cons?

    You can do this on Hopes quite easily, although:

    • I would still remove the cassette before removing the freehub, mostly as you will need access to press in the seal when reinstalling it, so you will need a chain whip and lockring tool.
    • You will likely have to get the rotor off to be able to replace a spoke, so will need that tool as well (same lockring as the cassette?)
  • Anyone got an old Shimano 6700 rear hub knocking around? Need the RH cone/locknut unit off one.
