Flow 30 Rim Weights and hole count recommendations

Postby PsychoMike » September 17th, 2014, 9:39 am

Didn't see anything in a quick scan for this and had another question anyway....so here it goes...

Jon or Chris...what would you recommend for hole counts if doing a custom build for a Clyde class rider (weight varies, but say 240#) with Flo30's? I'm thinking 24/28 Flow30's mated to Hope Mono RS hubs (Radial front, 2x rear) using CX Rays or double-butted DT spokes.

I know the hubs will be about 380 g total, I have a good idea of spoke and nipple weights....what about the rims? I suspect this sort of set-up can be built up stronger, lighter and more aero than my current wheels if I'm providing the wheel building (I've done a good number of sets).

Also, do you have a recommended maximum spoke tension?

Thanks :)
