    can disc brake hubs be laced to 88mm chinese carbon hoops ?

    basically want to know if disc brakes hubs can be laced to chinese carbon rims.
    i picked 88mm because they have highest weight limit
    so i assume that means they are the strongest

    Man...you have a lot of weird questions.
    Why wouldn't you be able to lace a rim to a hub?
    And I take it you would be using these for cross....88s are over kill.

    because i don't build wheels is why i ask.

    the deeper wheel says it has highest rider weight limit is why i asked about 88 .

    Why would you not buy CF 29r rims instead?
    Why (other than the weight limit) would you require disc brake equipped 88mm deep carbon rims?
    Oh, and if you are worried about the weight limit, why would you want CF rims?
    An aluminium 29er or touring rim may be a better option?

    What do you weigh.
    If you are that heavy that you are worried about the weight limit on the rims then I am questioning what benefit you think the CF rims are going to give you.

    I think the biggest issue you will encounter is finding a set of disc hubs that match the rims. If you can get the rims in 28 or 32 hole, then you shouldn't have too much of a problem getting rims with that drilling. Any less and you will have issues finding a hub as well as the fact that you have very little in spoke movement due to the larger rims.

    It is absolutely possible. It depends on your frame/fork obviously, but if you have clearance you can make it happen. Keep in mind that 29'' and 700c are the exact same diameter.

    i weigh 150.
    the reason for the carbon rims is cosmetic bling .

    the cyclocross frame will be the Chinese disc brake ready frame/fork

    that does not help me attain the correct wheels and hubs .
    i also don't know if cyclocross uses roadbike or mtn bike width hubs.

    update, i received this mtn bike hub info.
    100mm in the front and 135mm for the rear .You would be fine on 28/28
    and was told silver color was an option in this brand.
    but silver is not shown in the options , only black and red are listed ..
    if i can't find polished silver set of hubs.
    i would like to find disc ready hubs that look like shiny carbon weave .

    150lb or 150kg?
    If 150lb I can see 28 spoke maybe being ok.
    If 150kg, then no.
