rims with a 2:1 spoke ratio?

by Old Nick   August 21, 2014  

Hi, I've searched the forum but could find nothing about this, so apologies if I'm covering old ground.
I have a set of fulcrum wheels, the rear having a pretty worn rim, but the hub is still fine. I enjoy building a wheel so I figured I'd get a new rim for this one and lace it up. The hub has 16 drive side spoke and 8 non-drive side, and I can't find a rim with drilling angled such a way as to accept such a lacing. I guess there probably isn't such a thing in an aftermarket rim, but I figured it'd be worth asking before I assign the wheels to turbo trainer only use.

Cheers.

You can buy a replacement rim off i-ride via a dealer

Cheers. I can't find the rim for the wheels I have but the racing 5 ones might do the job. I think they had 24 in the rear pre-2010 which these claim to be. Not a bad price either.

Was the original lacing radial non drive and 2 cross drive side? Does the hub have regular flanges or are they a proprietory configuration?

If yes, I have been looking at these Pacenti rims from the states (dealers over here don't seem to do the drillings for 24 with one side radial (and in my case 27 to reuse Campag G3 rear hub) but this guy does:

They're very well rated rims (24mm width 26mm depth and light) and should be an upgrade overall.
