Re: Any Ideas for some stong Hubs?
- i've got rhynolites with 1.5" tires on my x right now.
they are compatible, but i'm planning on going back to
schwalbe marathon 1.75's soon, when i get new ones. i
find the 1.5" tires to be not stable enough,
especially with a lot of weight. i think the
marathons are built much stronger as well.
re: Shimano Alfine rear hub for bigger rider
i think 36 spokes on the back are enough even for the
loads you're talking about. if it's well built by a
good shop with a stout rim. i don't know about the
durability of the hub with big loads. it's defiitely
beyond what it's built for. if you do many hills it
may not have enough gear range either.
