White Industry T11

I was wondering how these hus would work for a 235# rider. I'm having a custom set of wheels built at my LBS. i'm going with the new Ultegra 6800 laced to HED C2 32H, with DT Aero Comp. the Ultegra hubs are on BO until late Feb. i'm just looking at a back up in case this date gets pushed out further. hopefully not, but wanted an alternate hub of choice. i have read some posts about the T11 having some tension issues on the rear DS. This would be my everyday wheel set.

Dish is part of having all those cogs stacked up on the right side ..

to make room you have to force the right side hub flange towards the center line of the bike
so higher tensions of the whole right side spokes is increased, to accomplish that. .

if you feel a need for a hub like that , its not that much different than any other cassette hub.

the fractions of a MM matter to some people more than others..
reviewers split hairs to sell their story to publishers.

I'm no longer a Clyde (now about 170 lbs.) but I like my T-11 rear hub. It's on a 650B wheel with a 9-speed cassette; I ride on rough pavement and gravel, and it hasn't given me any problems. It's noisy when coasting, though - a lot more than the Shimano hubs I have on some of my other rear wheels. It certainly looks nice.
