Let's talk hubs - 24h?

I am considering building up some H and Sons 20h and 24h rims for a c&v tri bike and wondered if the was a c&v hub (dura ace?) that has the corresponding hole numbers for front and rear respectively. I have my 600 hubs I could just use to build the 32h rims but would prefer to get as aero as possible, naturally.

Suggestions?

20/24H's pretty daring for C&V......Are you going all the way with maybe radial/2 crosss??
And I thought I was pretty brave with 28/28H, 2 cross with some of my wheelsets!

If you can't find the proper hubs, you can lace 36H hubs for 24H, and 40H hubs for 20H rims.

I have a Raleigh Team Pro with 24-spoke Campagnolo Record hubs front and rear. The Record hubs were available from 24-hole to 40-hole, and nowadays, lots of NOS 24-hole sets seem to show up on eBag.

I initially built the wheels with 15/17/15 chrome-plated Berg-Union spokes (this was the pre-DT era), which was dumb. You almost couldn't see any spokes from ten feet away, and I couldn't keep the rears from loosening, so I loctited 'em. Rims were (and still are) super-light 285-gram Fiamme Ergals. The biggest problem with wheels like that (other than major flexibility!) is that if you break a spoke (or a ferrule blows out, in the case of the Ergals, which happened to me once) the bike becomes almost unrideable. I've since become a little bit more reasonable and re-laced the wheels with DT straight-gauge 15 ga. spokes, but they are still crazy-light wheels that I wouldn't recommend for most riders.

My question is why would anyone want to do this? Form and to heck with function? It makes little sense to weaken the component that gets the most, and most aggressive, use.

Still, each to his own and let us know how it works out.

Well, to each his own, I guess. I've had those 24-spokers on that bike for decades, and I live with some of the worst roads in the nation, but I'm relatively light at 160 lb. The only issues have been that the 7000 series Ergals can eventually fatigue and blow out a ferrule (as I indicated), but that has almost nothing to do with spoke count, it's just that those (most excellent) rims do that after tens of thousands of miles, usually....
