    AC Micro 58 front hub - Can I lace heads-in?

    I have a 20H American Classic Micro 58 front hub I plan on building up either radial or 1X. My question is if I can lace heads-in to maximize the bracing angle. I have noticed that all the AC factory built wheels using this hub are heads-out radial. A test fit of a few spokes shows me that heads-in leaves the spoke exiting parallel to the flange, not toward the center of the rim. After incerting the spokes, can I pre-bend the spoke elbows a bit to steer the spoke toward center?

    Does anyone have experiance using this hub heads-in?

    Yes you can lace them heads in. On any hub you will need to bend the spokes a bit more to get them angled correctly toward the rim.
