    Getting Deep V's - what kind of Hubs should I get?

    So this is what i know about rims... if you get deep v's you need to get it laced to a specific type of HUB right? is there anything i'm missing?

    what type of hub should i get?, i don't need anything crazy and extremely expensive, but something decent

    help?

    thanks~!

    You know it's funny, when I first started riding, I knew what wheels were, not the brand of a rim with no knowledge of anything else. Seems weird that someone knows about a "deep-v" but nothing else about a wheel. Wonder what that says. No offense.

    That said, Formula hubs seem to be the most popular right now and hold up well. You are also going to need spokes...

    the only thing that matters is that the amount of holes on the hub matches the amount of holes in the rim. get whatever you want.

    judging by your question, formulas should do you just fine. not flashy, but solid and dependable. i can't complain about mine.

    My rear is goin to be laced to a Promax (suzue), and the front either to the matching promax if I can get a cheap 28h deepv, or a formula. My deepVs are white.

    that's funny, that's the same thing that happened to me. It didn't help that I had a ****ty punched cog with a no name lockring.

    that being said, drill some extra holes in your deep v's, get some gold spokes and lace them to these: http://cgi.ebay.com/ALLOY-48-HOLE-BM...ayphotohosting

    snoop dog style.

    The faster you go, the more lift you get from them; effectively reducing your rolling resistance?

    Formulas don't hold up. They strip.

    My Formulas have been awesome. I think it's a matter of treating them well. Just (red) Loctite a cog on, toss on a lockring and rock that out.

    Also, this thread is hilarious.

    128, given the experience of the OP clear from the question, you should have been more precise:
    The number of holes on the hub should match the number of holes in the rim minus one.
