    I have a non boost Hope front hub, currently with a boost conversion kit, it works fine.

    I’m about to replace the front rim with a different model, so may need new spokes as I haven’t checked the ERD yet.

    It’s it worth buying a new boost front hub or continue with my existing hub? Is there a structural benefit to a proper boost hub? I like how the spoke tension is a bit more even with the boost kit.

    Thanks

    Pretty unlikely you’ll be able to notice any benefit, unless you’re Greg Minnaar.

    And for the cost of a new hub, rim, and build, you’re probably better off buying a full wheel and selling the old one.
