Okay, I most probably ****ed my rear hub and since it is on a cheap rim, I am going to replace the whole lot and build it myself.
The hub will be a Surly New Rear track hub, 32H laced into a Mavic Open Pro rim 700c/23 with some Wheelsmith Straight 2.0 (294mm ) Spokes and matching nipples. The Cog and Lockring will both be Surly as well, just to ensure a proper fit.
The aim of this wheel is to be used in non-competitive road riding. Thus, weight is not so much an issue but durability is.
Any suggestions? Easy upgrades? Stupid things, bad matches or whatever in there? Or am I good to go with this stuff?
EDIT: Seems if I go to a different store, I can swap the Surly parts out with Shimano Durace, better or worse?
