My rims are shot so I’m looking for new rims and spokes. My hubs are going strong so I’d like to re-use them. This time I’d like to lace the front wheel radially…
It’s a pleasure to ride nice hubs and, like this customer found, they can survive many sets of rims. But I’ll only re-use your hubs with the same lacing pattern used before. This is for safety. Changing from a cross pattern to radial is the most dangerous case and a notorious cause of hub flange cracks. So let’s re-use your hubs, lace them smart and stay out of the dentist’s chair.
