16h hubs to 32h rims, will i die?
I have old cosmic carbone hubs that are 16h and I would like to lace them to 42mm deep aluminum hoops, only thing is i cannot get them in 16h and was thinking of lacing them to every-other-hole on a 32h drilling.
I will fill the alternating holes with a touch of expanding glue (weightless)
the rims weight about 640g/each.
1. will this hub/rim combo work?
2. with only 16 spokes front/rear, is the rim sacrificing any durability/strength?
sorry, i am new to wheel building, but my old carbones have eaten their eyelets...
