    could you comment on the 16:8 hub option? is it more stiff than 12:12? is it any harder to build the wheel?
    I'm thinking of building a set of pacentis with 16:8

    My 1x11 works fine as a fast, light commuter (fenders but no rack). If I needed to haul heavy stuff I would need a smaller chainring or a double. But as is it also works as a road bike.

    PS I really enjoy the spacing in the middle of the shimano 11-32 cassette, 16-18-20-22-25
