I wanted to make use of a sample taiwanese Formula-like track hub that I received from one of my suppliers. It’s well built and 32 hole drilling. I didn’t want to build with carbon, deep carbon. Now 32h is kind of overkill for an 88mm deep carbon tubular rim, but why not? I scrounged up some old DT Swiss Champion spokes I had kicking around for several years. I cut and rolled the threads to make them short enough for this build. It turned out pretty well, I think, and I’ll be racing on it all summer up at greater Victoria’s Westshore Velodrome.
