May I ask for advice? I'm about to replace my wheels on my Surly LHT and I'd like to ask for recommendations / warnings.
I'm a heavy guy and I carry a lot of gear. I've always run 700x32 tires. Any guidance on hubs, spoke count, spoke type, lacing pattern, rims? My current wheels have XT 36-spoke hubs, DT 14 gauge spokes in a 4-cross pattern, and DT Swiss 7.1 rims.
I'm contemplating putting a dynamo in the front wheel.
If you asked me, what's your primary goal in this purchase, I'd say: I never want these wheels to go out of true.
If you asked me, what's your lowest priority concern, I'd say: lightweight is not a concern
thanks in advance!
