    Rims For Neutron Hubs

    Has anyone had any experience of having a non stock rim laced to a pair of Neutron hubs and if so which rim and where from?

    Thanks....

    Shouldn't you consider this from the opposite perspective? Which is to say, you have Campagnolo Record hubs (or Chorus). People have built these with DT rims, and Open Pro rims, and many others. As long as the rims and spokes are compatible they will work. Once you take away the spokes and rims, there is nothing specifically "Neutron" about those hubs.

    Actually Julius, this is not correct.

    Although Neutron hubs take the same internals, the shell of the rear hub is quite different, with the spoke spacing about 10mm greater than standard, the difference being that the NDS flange is about 10mm to the left. This teams up with the asymmetric Neutron rear rim that has the holes drilled to the left.

    I know because I have both, and just measured.

    So, the OP's question is really asking how this would work with a standard, center spoke, rim. Here's where a wheel expert needs to chime in. I don't know.
    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?

    One.

    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    Ah, thanks for correcting me. I had thought that the hubs have standard dimensions. My bad!
