I am planning on buying a set of Hope hoops soon, been looking at Winstanleys at the straight pull hubs, or Wheelpro with the standard hubs. Is there any advantage with the SP hubs? I understand that Wheelpro check the wheels/spoke tension before they are sent out, and they work out a bit cheaper by the time you add the rim tape and valves on, so is this worth it over the SP wheels?
Also, want to get Stans rims, but not sure whether to get the 355 or the Flow. I only weight 10.5 stone, bike is an Orange 5, currently with 2.35 High Rollers. Current rims are 2006 WTB Speeddisc, which have been fine, are these nearer the 355's or the Flow's?
