    80's 105 hubs, low flange - can i radial lace?

    Is radial lacing ok with these low flange hubs? I read something somewhere that only high flange is ideal for radial lacing, but i noticed all modern road wheels have radial laced front wheels..

    were they previously laced, or are these NOS?

    if the former, you should stick with the same pattern as it was before.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Shimano and Campy expressly void their warranty if their hubs are laced radially. Now the warranty isn't an issue with 25 year old hubs but it says that the manufacturer thinks it's a bad idea.

    Modern radial laced wheels have hubs specifically designed to take stresses in the radial direction. Yours weren't.

    awesome guys, thanks much for the heads up!

    agreed, mine are not NOS, and i think are double crossed.
