I have got hold of a very rare Mavic 501 rear hub with 24 holes, didn't know they existed at such low spoke count... any idea what to lace it to?
Ideally a late 80-early 90 rim, possibly with a bit of profile, needs to be stiff enough for low spoke count construction... would even go carbon, but I can't face changing pads all the time
Tubular would be best

You'll have no worries about snapping spokes or collapsing a rim then matey unless you an ultra strong beef eater :D

Presumably something from the Mavic CXP range will suit? a bit later than my era though :)

Don't come as 24 and hardly exciting...

Anyone has any experience with Campagnolo Omega V? Braking OK? I had some Wolber Profil 18, very similar and the braking was juddering to say the least

what a shame Araya didn't make 24 spokers in these rims! Or did they?

''Edit''

Seems they did come in 24 spoke holes.

I've got Campag Omega Vs, strong rims and the right era. No idea if they came in 24 hole flavour though.

I have spotted a set of Omega V at 24 holes... my concern with rims like that is whether the braking will be as awful as the Wolber Profil 18... I loved them, but just could not use them... the bulge at the rim joint was gigantic
