  • A friend of mine has a set of ratty 350s SP hubs I am thinking of stripping or de-anodizing as I want to build op a nice silver set of wheels for my neo-retro Vitus. Have not seen a strip of hubs done before and cannot really find anything on the www.

    First issue that comes to mind is the SP spoke holes, would be near impossible to clean.

    Should I just get silver Bitex instead?
    I like that all my wheels have DT Swiss hubs :(

    That's what pipe cleaners are for.
    If you're thinking of caustic treatment, make sure you mask the bearing bores. Taking 25μm off the outer surfaces to deanodise is fine, taking 10μm out of a small bearing bore can be the difference between a press fit and a rattling disaster area.

  • On the subject of shiny hubs - for 32h disc options are Bitex Bx106 the best bet for the money or am I missing any others? Other than hope obvs

    Ordered a hub / rim / spokes, going off the manfacturer hub spec, the PCD is 5mm smaller than IRL... so now we wait for more spokes ..!

    TBF the most repeated phrase in this thread is measure stuff yourself.

  • 100% just trying to make one order for the parts due to high shipping costs!

  • Yeah, that's why most people (me included) risk it.

  • managed to get supplier to send out replacements foc, due to incorrect info! so not all is lost to faffing.

  • Win, count yourself lucky.
    I long ago stopped doing all in one orders for wheel builds.

  • most of the time im building stuff I have in hand, know, or a combination of stuff I have measured so its no issue! just trying to balance stuff when its an unknown

  • Hello, can anyone please give me a definite answer on the ERD of the new Mavic CXP pro? As usual I've looked online and found three separate answers.. thank you
