    Did I make a bad call?wheel build parts advise.

    So, I am on to my second wheel build. This time I am going for strong. I opted for White industries hubs. Now, everyone is on about the T11's and my cheap ass bought a h2/h3 set. (I got a really good deal)

    Now my question, i am running a 10 speed rear and dont see any changes any time soon. Should I sell these and buy the T11's? Is there any issue with the older design?

    Nothing wrong with the H2 H3 hubs. THe flange spacing on H seriesis better than the T11 if you using 10 speed.

    The H2/H3 was a great hubset. Pretty much the same as the T11s except slightly heavier with a bit better flange spacing.

    All in all I think you made a solid choice. If your not planning on upgrading to 11 speed anytime soon I see no reason to sell these hubs.

    +1 on the H2/H3 hubs. I have two pairs that are now 7 years old that roll and look just like new.....when I polish them with a little Semichrome. I have 10s of 1,000s of miles on them too (I quit counting several years ago).

    If I owned T11 hubs I'd gladly trade you for those. For 10 speed users they are the better choice. The only reason to get T11 instead would be if you used 11 speed.
