We are looking to get a new set of wheels for our Cannondale tandem. The actual wheels are DT disk hubs, with Mavic 719 rim and DT 40 spokes 4X lacing.
The new set is required mainly as a spare set but of course I would like it to be a bit lighter and a bit sexier. The new set would be used only for very light touring. Our team weight is 300 lb. So we were looking to have a set build for us with Deep V rims, 36 spokes and either White or Chris King disk hubs.
I need 3 advices. First I need to know if 3X lacing would be sufficient for disk brake?
Second, Are the Chris King hub much superior to the White hub? If so because of what??
Third, who are the good Tandem wheel builder? Forget any LBS around here because they are not even interested to order tandem hubs so I would not trust them.
Thanks for your help,
