    Bikehubstore SL210 Hub -- any experience out there?

    I was looking at an e-bay wheelset offering and he uses this rear hub in a 16:8 triplet lacing. https://www.bikehubstore.com/SL210-p/sl210.htm

    Anyone have any experience or thought on this hub?

    This is just a regular hub drilled for triplet lacing, not a hub actually designed for triplet lacing.
    You'll gain balanced-ish spoke tension left and right but lose lateral stiffness.

    The hub itself is cheap and cheerful. Design is simple. Bearings are relatively small and longevity may be problematic. Mine came with low quality Enduro bearings. I guess you get what you pay for.

    As stated, the bearings are relatively small and I wouldn't recommend this to larger riders. I've had a couple quality control issues with these, but you can't beat the price and weight. I'm ambivalent about triplet lacing and most rims are not designed for it.

    I built up a set for a 16:8 for a friend of mine friend mine. They have worked well for him.

    I prefer to use this hub with a standard 1:1 spoking and an offset rear rim like Pacenti Forza

    Sorry for getting back to this thread late. I am more familiar with DTSwiss hubs but see many builders suggesting White Ind T11. I guess I don't need the cheapest hub and don't see a reason not to go with a 24 spoke 2x build.

    Thanks all for taking the time to respond.

    DT Swiss vs. White Industries? I would go with White Industries. They have a Ti freehub which will be less prone to cassette gouging than the DT hubs.
