    Sorry for the confusing wording.
    My buddy just bought a new disc Roibaix and it has a special narrower rear hub spacing.
    If you want to buy/ build wheels you need to use their hub or one other mfr makes a hub right now.
    Just saying it is a bit different than others right now.
    Not good/bad/better or worse. Just different.
    Certainly more challenging to borrow wheels in 2017 then it has been in years past.

    Thru-axle standards

    I ended up going with prowheelbuilder. I've had pretty good results with them in the past:

    Front Wheel
    Front Hub: HOPE PRO 4 FRONT RED ISO 6 BOLT DISC HUB
    Drillings 32
    Axle Width Thru 12mm
    Front Lacing Pattern: Three Cross
    Front Nipple:SAPIM POLYAX 14MM 14 GAUGE BLACK BRASS NIPPLE
    Front Rim: H PLUS SON ARCHETYPE BLACK 700C FRONT RIM - Drillings 32
    Front Spoke: SAPIM LEADER J BEND BLACK 14G OR 2.0MM SPOKES
    Wheel Build Weight
    900.76

    Rear Wheel
    Rear Hub: HOPE PRO 4 REAR RED ISO 6 BOLT DISC HUB - Drillings 36
    Axle Width Thru 12x142mm
    Stainless Shimano/SRAM 8,9,10 or (ROAD 11spd)
    Rear Lacing Pattern: Four Cross
    Rear Nipple: SAPIM POLYAX 14MM 14 GAUGE BLACK BRASS NIPPLE
    Rear Rim: H PLUS SON ARCHETYPE BLACK 700C REAR RIM - Drillings 36
    Rear Spoke: SAPIM LEADER J BEND BLACK 14G OR 2.0MM SPOKES

    Wheel Build Weight
    1056.48

    Not light, but they should be plenty strong. This was way more angst than it should have been regarding discrepancies in specs and differing standards. I looked at a number of different hub options and some, like Bitex, just didn't have a 12mm option for the front.

    Bitex hubs have basically everything (other than 36h drilling) as an option, including 12 mm thru. However you run into issues of what is in stock

    Either way though, you have some nice wheels coming.

    Ah, but there's another standard... 6-bolt or center lock...
