Currently pricing up a rear wheel build as my planet x model b rear has hit the dust. Have started doing research and realise it's an absolute minefield
I'm looking at using a kinlin xr200 (395g) in 28h and whacking some dt laser spokes
* Aero spokes (cx rays) very little difference and not worth the extra expense
* For some reason Roger musson doesn't advocate double butted spokes at 2mm/1.5mm/2mm for road wheels
I wouldn't use 2/1.5/2mm in road wheels because they twist too much and are difficult to tension and consequently many of the wheels you see built with these spokes are under tensioned. for lightweight sports wheels i've started using dt competition 1.8/1.6/1.8
I was even thinking of going up to a 32h hub to get a stiffer wheel or should i go for a deeper section rim to get more stiffness?
