Okay, so here's the scenario. I currently have a LHT with the stock 26" Alex Adventurer rims on both of the wheels. Before my tour this fall I want to put a dynamo hub (SON28) on the front wheel to power a headlight, taillight, and something to charge electronics (e-werk maybe). I was just going to buy the hub and have my LBS build a wheel using the new hub, new spokes and the old rim (only a few hundred miles on it). My LBS said he didn't recommend using the old rim, but it may not be a problem.
So comparing the price that my LBS wanted to build the new wheel with one built by Peter White (peterwhitecycles.com) I figured it might just be better to buy a full wheel from Peter White. So here's my question for you: will riding with two different, though similar, rims pose any problems? If so should I just buy the hub and have my LBS build me a wheel? If I should get a wheel built by Peter, any recommendations on what rim to go with?
Thanks for any input. I try to find the answers to most of my questions by lurking and searching here, but sometimes specifics just require a post. If this post would be more suitable for the Bicycle Mechanics thread I apologize, it just seemed more appropriate here since I'll be riding with a loaded rig among other things.
