I have more too add too. When I get time I will post hub and rim ERD's but most of what I have is for road stuff (modern dare I say it) but it would be nice to have a format that others can add too for rim ERD's and hub dimesnions so folk can make some more informed decision about picking components that will be right for there needs. It would not be a replacement for measuring yourself but certain hubs lend themselves to certain rims and visa versa.
Had a look inside my old Parallax hubs – I think these have seen better days, after over 20 yrs use, so these on the old wheels are going to form a trailer for allotment trips.
In your opinion, what criteria decides hub/rim combinations? I'm considering current XM317s & XT hubs for the new build, but can't decide on plain gauge or DB spokes. A while back in my research when I was once considering buying custom built wheels, I read that Spa Cycles on their rear wheels use a combination of DB spokes with plain gauge spokes on the drive side – is this necessary?
