Just returned from a CL find. I bought a Rolf Sestriere front wheel (20 spokes), a Sestriere rear hub (24 holes), and 3 NOS Sestriere rims (20 spokes).
I wasn't really paying attention to the spoke count, and unwisely shrugged off the difficulty of finding a replacement paired 24 hole rim. I'm currently trying to upgrade the Rolf Vectors on my Lemond Buenos Aires.
Right now my options seem to be:
a) Keep waiting for a 24-hole Sestriere rim on eBay (which will probably cost more than what I paid for the whole lot), sell 2 of the NOS 20 hole rims.
b) Sell the the (beautiful!) hub and rims and wait for a full rear Sestriere wheel
c) Try to find a non-Rolf 24-hole paired rim
Additionally, has anyone had any luck servicing the front hub? There's no spot for a cone wrench. The only info I found said to just "pull them apart," but there's nothing for me to pull on? I tried lightly using some needle nose pliers, but I'm too afraid to chew up the aluminum. Any ideas?
