26-hole hub?? - 98' Crossmax Rim

Looking for a 26H disc hub to accomodate an old Crossmax rim. Anyone know of a manufacturer that makes one?

With rims being as cheap as they are, I'd opt for just getting a new rim and not worrying about finding a really oddball drilled rim.

Have you checked that spoke count 2 or 3 times? 28 holes would be a much more likely drilling than 26.

I am aware of no spoke hole count not divisible by 4, since there are 4 groups of spokes in a wheel. Does not mean they could not exist and work after a fasion with some exotic unequal lacing pattern, I've just never heard of such a thing.

Doesn't Campy make a 27 hole wheel? I thought they did at some point but can't find any info on it now. Maybe it sucked that bad.

Considering the DS/NDS tension imbalance campy tends to run a 27H rim isn't a stupid idea at all. It'd let you run 18 spokes on the DS and 9 on the NDS from a stock 36H hub and get a really decent spoke tension balance.

Some radially laced front wheels came in 18 and 26 spoke configurations, which is possible because radial lacing only has 2 groups (right and left). Such examples include Mavic Helium, Mavic Crossmax, and various Zipp wheels.

Correct, it's called G3 lacing. 9 radially laced NDS and 18 2 cross DS.


As well as a 21 spoke wheel (14/7)

Ah yes, of course.(Smacks head.) Guess I shouldn't be staying up that late anymore. Couldn't pull myself out of my (sometimes too) conventional thinking.
