- Dt Swiss revolution spokes and disk brakes, good or bad idea?
Slightly depends on your hub & rim too. The SO has a set of Stans Olympics/Revs/DT 240s, and to me, they’re terrifyingly flexy – I really can feel the wheel twist as I corner and I’m only 10stone. It’s not helped by a very light rim, and a hub with low flanges and poor flange spacing (the disc side flange is a long way inboard, so the spoke tension between L & R side is very uneven, and the bracing angle is poor).
I’ve got several wheels with DT Supercomps in and they’ve been bombproof, and split the difference weight wise quite nicely. Sapim D-lights are the same idea but cheaper, so I’d use them in future, personally.Posted 3 years agoSOAPMember
They have been built on CK hubs and flow ex rims by a very credible wheel builder.Posted 3 years ago
I had no input on spoke choice other than double butted. Maybe I should of looked into it a bit more or maybe that’s all they had in the shop.
Not been out on them yet so cannot pass judgement yet.
