First post in this thread.
I will soon be getting a set of Campa Record Pista hubs in the mail, and a set of Mavic MA-40s I intend to lace them to. I don't want to do radial but is 1x a viable option for front lacing? (36 hole f/r) If not, I plan to do 2x front and 3x DS 2x NDS rear, unless you think there are better options.
I plan to source spokes from you. I assume there would be no complications using CX-rays with Record hubs?
Last question, the hub I bought is shipping with an original cog and lockring. I want to shelve these. What current production cogs and lockrings are compatible with Campa threads (If you know)?
Thank you for your help.
I know this is a rather bit silly but I didn't see it to be new thread worthy.
Scrod, got any tips or tricks for getting into straps with bulky work shoes? I can thread the needle just fine with my Converses on but when it comes time to do it with my work shoes it is a nightmare. I've tried dialing in my strap length and shape by marking the strap positions with small velcro pieces on the inside, and its still considerably difficult.
Thanks, for the help guys. I think I should of specified I have a pair of Scrod's v2 straps, however the talk about clips has given me an idea. Going to see if I can create a arched spine down the middle of the strap to hold a better shape so I can get my shoe in easier. If I actually get it to work, it'll be hidden by the top cover strap and no one would know it was there.
MA-40s are great, durable rims, but they are a an old school box rim and that doesn't jibe with the look of a bladed spoke to my eye. Personally, I'd just use Sapim Race spokes with that hub/rim combo for aesthetic reasons, but that's just my preference. If they're 32h I'd lace them 3x. It'll be a good looking wheelset that'll look good with vintage or modern frames.
