Recently I taco'd my front wheel and I'm contemplating getting it rebuilt (the hub has <1 year on it, and its still good).
This is the taco'd wheel --> http://tinyurl.com/3jtopqf
Runs about 280 usd online. I'm estimating the rebuild cost to be ~200.
I'm currently rim shopping and was wondering if there are any good rim recommendations? It is a 20 hole hub, and I'd like something (close) to a 24mm depth. Al clincher too.
Also I was contemplating just buying a new front wheel, then building up a second set of wheels with my old hub, and a power tap (this would make 2 sets of "race worthy" wheels for me). Would strongly consider making this a tubeless set up as well.
Only kicker is that I'd really like a quarq instead of a PT, however the PT is looking like a better financial decision these days.
Which makes me wonder, can a power tap hub accomodate bladed spokes? I'm guessing no...
FWIW I do race, but I was afraid of the answers I'd find in the 41. Thanks!
