So I'm building up a set of 24H wheels (front and rear) around the pair of Suntour Superbe pro hubs pictured below. I need to decide on the rims, spokes, and lacing pattern, and was hoping to get some input/ opinions. My goal is a light, strong wheelset that will hold up on regular roads on my Sunday rides. I weigh about 175lbs, and don't abuse my wheels.
For rims, I'm thinking of going with Araya ADX Aero 4 tubular rims:
These are quite light, weighing in at 300g per.
For spokes, I was thinking double butted, say 14/15/14, with brass nipples, laced 2X front and rear.
I generally prefer tubular rims, but am completely open to suggestions. Should I go radial lacing front? Bladed spokes? Alu nipples? Other rim choices? If I could get my hands on Araya ADX 240CF's (Carbon fiber) I'd go for those, but outside of Japan they are impossible to find.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Of course, I could always abandon the light idea and lace the hubs to Araya SA30's for a really cool looking (though probably insanely heavy) wheelset:
(the ones I have available to me are clinchers).
*For the Suntour afficianada out there, these hubs are first generation superbe pros's: note the larger print on the labels, the stickers (rather than laser print) down the centers, and the grease ports in the silver (rather than black) dust shields (yes, they are traditional loose ball + cone hubs, rather than the later ingenious custom modified 6001-sealed bearing/ cone system found on all later generation superbe pro hubs).
