I hope I might again test your patience with one of these user level questions:
I am building up a new set of riding wheels. I am not too worried about matching front and rear hubs, but will build to matching rims. The rear will be a current version Phil Wood, 126m in 36h, chosen for the strength of axle and because I’m a life long Phil fan. Old C&V frame, friction, etc.
The front hub, however, should come from one of the multiple orphan front hubs in my collections box. The only Phil front I have is 28h, and I don’t think my overweight (aka fat-ass) body should go down to a 28h hub. Plus, it's really really hard to match any C&V-appropriate 36h rear rim to a 28h front rim of the same type. (Open to be educated there, but I still worry about 28h for my fat class.)
SO, the question is to ask help in choosing which orphan front hub is best of what I have - or if there is enough difference to matter among them. Given the following odd-man-out front hubs, what would you suggest I choose? Thanks.
1) a NOS Suntour XC Pro in 32h. This is a cartridge bearing unit.
2) a NOS Mavic 601 in 36h. This is a cartridge bearing unit.
3) a NOS Zeus New Racer in 36h. Classic loose bearing hub.
4) a NOS Campagnolo Croce D’Aune in 36h. Classic loose bearing hub.
5) a NOS Phil Wood in 28h. As noted above.
6) or: Sell the 28h and buy a 36h Phil to match.
I appreciate comments and suggestions.
