Just looking for some info on helping me build a single speed wheel. I'll be riding a '15 nature boy (no disc) and I'm looking to invest in some solid wheels that'll last thru training and racing, along with maybe a little bit of commuting. I'm more confused on how many spokes I should have in the from compared to the back, idk should I do a 24 front and 28 rear? Will that be doable with the components I'm interested in? Anyway here's what I'm looking at...
Rims- h plus sons archetype
Hubs- white industries eno
Spoke nipples- dt Swiss aluminums
Spokes- sapim cx Ray bladed spokes
I haven't researched rubber yet, if you guys wanna throw some opinions in that's cool, I'll mainly be doing north east ccx, if that's of any info to you guys.
And I also have a question pertaining riding fixed, is there a quality hub anyone would suggest for riding fixed? I'd like to train-commute on fixed while racing SS. Or is my best bet just grab an extra wheel just for fixed? (I'm not made of money and would rather not take that route)
I was also looking at white industries crank set and ring, I see great reviews on it. Maybe someone could also suggest a bottom bracket that would work well with it.
Purple isn't my fave color....but dark purp and black? I think it'll look mean
