So what is the best hub to run with something like an Open Pro rim? I’m not very keen on Shimano hubs because they’re not sealed, and I’d be riding in mud and rain etc. I hear Shimano hubs are great when new, but unless you fastidiously maintain them, they won’t last.
Hope and DT Swiss hubs seem pretty nice.
i dunno bout what you said in regards to shimano hubs…
but i have a set of 105 hubs built to cxp33(red ano ) they were built in 2000( i think) and then spent the next 4 years as my training wheels doing about a 700-1000k a week. Yet still today they roll almost as smoothly as new.
sounded alot like you were trying to call me out tho
00 Criterium 3rd
01 national xc champ
01 flying 200mm TT champ
01 sprint champ
01 500m TT champ (aus record held untill my old mate scott sunderland broke it :D)
01 pairs time trial 3rd(i was supprised as im far from a long distance time trialer)
01 was a good year, lol, for the next few years my interest slowly dropped, then i was over it
i wouldnt say pro, simply cos as a junior well u cant be pro/on a team ( well then you couldnt), but i could more than hold my own racing in open events. alot of people dont realise how competitive junior racing is( at a national level anyway)
