Identify These Campagnolo Hubs? What Wheelset To Build With?
Guys, can you tell me what model and maybe what year
of Campagnolo hubs these are? I am a noob at identifying components, sorry if this is screamingly obvious.
Both 36 holes. Freehub body says "9 SPEED", the rear hub's QR end and the clip covering the oil port say "Campagnolo BREV INT". Front hub's QR has a teardrop hole in the lever end, the QR end says "Campagnolo BREV INT", black plastic ends of hub body say "Campagnolo Made In Italy", the clip over the oil port says nothing. Front hub is designed to have all spokes' heads on the outside of the flange. I don't have any reason to think the hubs were originally a set or that these are their original QRs. They have been laced but don't seem to have been ridden much, and spin smoothly.
And, can you advise me how you'd build them up,
if you were me? I want to build a clincher wheelset for my project Vitus 992. I'm 185 lb, easy on gear, will ride unloaded for fun, no racing. I want light wheels, but I also want trouble-free wheels - its worth a few extra ounces to me.
I'd thought of 36 spokes rear, and 32 front. I could go looking for a 32 hole front hub, or just use this one. What pattern, how many crosses? And what rims? Mavic Open Pros seem like a pretty standard choice, would you use something else? What spokes?
Money is something of an object, but I don't need to be entirely wallet-driven.
Oh, yes, I've never built a wheel before - but I'm taking a class and will build a couple other wheels first. Still, maybe sticking to a simpler pattern would be best.
