I recently ordered a 'bespoke' touring bike and went for the Surly LHT. Now I discover that the builder of the bike has fitted the basic road bike Hope Hoops with a 130mm rear hub on Mavic Open Pro rims. My local bike dealer said this would be bad if the frame wasn't made of steel but that it's still a bit naughty because the LHT is for a 135mm MTB hub. He also said the Open Pro hoops are not suitable for proper long distance touring.
Can anybody offer a second opinion on this?
