I recently purchased a SRAM Automatix 2 Speed Hub.
I want to use it with a SUN CR18 rim, to build a wheel for my around town MTB.
The SRAM hub has really large spoke holes, they seem like they are about 3 mm or maybe slightly more in diameter. Will this cause an issue if I build the wheel with spokes with regular sized heads?
When I say regular, I am using the spokes I used for the front wheel as a basis for comparison. This is a CR18 Rim / Deore Front hub combo, with some wheelsmith double butted spokes. When I thread pokes I have left over from this wheel, through the SRAM hub, they do catch inside the spoke holes in the SRAM-flange, it just seems like there might be a lot of pressure put onto directly onto the spoke-heads.
Any thoughts or recommendations on spokes would be helpful. I'm not sure if this is a problem or not - don't have the experience to know.
