mavic ellipse - hub only?

(repost from SSFG)

http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Mavic-Ellips...item3f0c09f1c5

pretty sweet. wonder where they got those hubs and spokes from - broken ellipses? its weird how they have nine of them.

also, im not too great with wheelbuilding. can these be laced to standard 20h rims?

thanks!

yes, it's possible to lace it to a 20h rim.
but you'll need an ellipse rim or something that has a VERY similar ERD.

hmm - couldn't find anything on the ERD of the ellipse anywhere. mavic won't provide it on their website. would something similar, such as a kinlin xr300 (same depth) work?



apparently someone had the hub laced to a cosmic carbone as well.

thanks!
