    wheel build question

    A friend of mine has offered me a used (but quite nice) set of ringle hubs (city fleas). The internet seems a bit confused about these hubs, some sites label them as road, some as MTB hubs. I want to lace them to a set of Mavic CXP33 rims, this isn't going to be a problem, right?

    Is it the correct size for your frame?
    Does it have the correct number of spoke holes?
    Is the freehub the correct type as size for the cassette you plan to use?

    Sun Ringle lists them as having 130mm spacing so that would mean they are marketed as road hubs http://www.sun-ringle.com/product-va...ubs/city-flea/

    Grab the spreadsheet.

    Double check the flange radius's just to be certain...cause Ringle often posts one spec in a web page and another in a document. Their documentation tends to be haphazard.
