    Anything strong enough to resist the pressure of the tube from blowing out the cut in the tire will work. I've booted tires with dollar bills, Clif Bar wrappers, part of a Capri Sun pouch I found on...

    The Archetype isn't an expensive rim, though. They're about $55 - $60 most places I've seen them online. Take the Ultegra hub already owned from the Open Pro wheel and lace it with some double...

    Most. Not all.
    Trek uses 142mm rear spacing on their Domane Disc thru axle, and the same upgrade is being made to the Boone and Crockett disc CX bikes, switching from 135mm QR to 142mm thru axle.

    Totally agree. Unless you know and trust the seller, I wouldn't buy any used carbon components. It's way too easy to overlook a small stress fracture if you don't know what you're looking for.
