Pro quality Planet X alloy road hubs. Precision cartridge bearings and excellent build quality throughout offering the very best in rolling speed and wheel design.
Hi Paul - you'll need the appropriate one of these... http://www.planet-x-bikes.co.uk/i/q/HSFH/hub-freehub-body (the one for the R50s). Couple of allen keys inserted into the end of the axle to remove the 'cones' ... turn and the freehub comes off. Replace with Campag one. Tighten in place and Bob's your Uncle.
Hi James - I believe Open Pros only come in 28, 32 or 36 spoking. We don't stock them though. Unlikely you'll find any clincher rims spoked for anything less than 28 I'd have thought.
hi is there any chance of these being able to be laced onto some open pro rims or do open pro only come in 28 hole as the smallest. thanks james
Could you advise as to how a Campag freehub conversion can be done to these wheels?
Dan, we will be getting some more, click the request stock alert and you'll get an email when they come in.
Hi Nim - from our range? http://www.planet-x-bikes.co.uk/i/q/RIPXC20MM/planet-x-20mm-carbon-rim The 'problem' with 20/24 spoking configurations is that it's highly unlikely anyone is going to want to build a cheap set of wheels with as few spokes as that. Cheaper rims usually come in with a lot more spokes. So...the likelihood of finding anythng much cheaper is remote I'm afraid. Sorry :-(
Just ordered front &rear but can only find dt Swiss rr525 20/24 hole rims £50 @crc, any other options you can think of?
Hi, will you be getting new stock for 20h front Pro hubs in soon and will there be a silver colour option. Thanks Dan
Hi BrionyC and Maskell - they aren't slotted ready to take the DT flat bladed spokes but will take these... http://www.sapim.be/index.php?st=products&sub=spokes&category=3959&id=3340&detail=aero
Will these hubs take a bladed spoke?
Hi Andy - no. These are the hubs we use in our R50 wheel builds. You'll need the Planet X Superlight hubs.... http://www.planet-x-bikes.co.uk/i/q/HUPXRO/planet-x-small-flange-superlight-road-hub
Are these a direct replacement for the model B wheelset? My freehub is making a knarly noise when climbing :
Will these hubs accept a bladed spoke? If not are there any other front hubs with 20 holes available?
Martin, these hubs don't come with the QR skewers, sorry for any confusion.
Hi, are these hubs delivered with QR Skewers? I ask because there is a weight mentionned, but in the description there is nothing mentionned whether they're included or not! Thanks in advance for your quick reply! Martin
Received my Planet x carbon rims/hubs today in super quick time!Can't wait to build them up, they're gonna light as...
Hi Fred - it'll fit - yes! You'll need to know the ERD (Effective Rim Diameter) of your rim though to be able to enter all the data into DT Swiss's or Sapim's spoke length calculator tables... http://www.dtswiss.com/SpokesCalc/Welcome.aspx?language=en http://www.sapim.be/index.php?st=spokelength
HI, I need a new and better rear free hub to replace my zipp 182 one on my 404 zipp rear wheel... does your work with the 24hole zipp 404 rim !? about the spoke I don't know what I have to buy !? Sportively, fred.
Dewi, just spoke to the chief mechanic and he says all you need is a 18mm cone spanner and a 5mm allen key to hold the spindle and everything should come out.
Hi I am in the process of overhauling my Planet X hubs, I have dissassembled the axle and got the barings out no problem. How do I get the barings in the freehub out. Does the rachet side screw into the body? Your help would be much appreciated. Thanks
Yes please: a 28f/32r makes sense for many many people
These would be perfect for any wheel I build myself, cyclocross, road, training etc. BUT in 28 or 32 hole. I even have some Gel 280 & 330's in 36 hole. Please not all of us are Tri or fond of time trials.
Dear ceoboy. I'm afraid we don't do a Campag freehub body for these hubs. They're Shimano / SRAM only.
What pre-built accessories I need for campagnolo 11-speed cassette for this hubs? Thanks.
Dear planet x team.I use carbon 82/101 wheels set.What kind of spoke you use this wheel building.I see a little "P" the spoke head.Which tipe of pillar spoke this is? thanks szabi.
Yep, you can use any road hub with 82-101's. You may well need different length spokes though.
I have 82/101 carbon wheels set.I thinking about rear hub changes,can i use this hub to that rear wheels?
Hi Clayton, by all means you could re-build Model B wheels on these hubs. The freehub bodies are no cross compatible though.
Do these fit/work on planet x modle B wheels ? thanks
Hi Mark, I'll update the product description with the hub dimensions right now...
What are the flange width and right and left flange measuremets to center ?
Hi there, unfortunately, custom wheel building isn't a service that we currently offer.
hi, can you guys build these up to similar spec to the Model B wheelset? any idea on pricing? cheers
Ivan, I'll pass on the interest in 28 hole version to the powers that be.
Just finished building a front one of these onto a DT Swiss RR585. It's a wonderfully well made hub which makes the build easypeasy. Spins for ever and with the rim is a super stiff wheel ready for a winter of abuse. Amazing value, I would also like to add to the calls for a 28 hole rear.
The Pro Hubs a quite a bit nicer- improved super smooth and durable cartridge bearings and freehub alongside lighter skewers add up to make them a very good hub indeed...
Besides the weight and colour difference, how are these different from the superlight hubs?
+1 for a 32 hole set of hubs..would be exactly what im after
Ready for a lovely pair of wheels for next season then...
I'll forward the idea on to Frank Campbell who is acting Planet X brand manager and hopefully he'll get the balls in motion. Will be at least 3 months off though.
Yeah, I'd take a pair of 28, 32 right now, is it likely??
Marvellous, thanks very much - look forward to seeing them on the site in the (hopefully) near future.
Hi Neil. We don't have any plans to do these in 28/32 hole as yet but it is a good idea and we will take it on board, cheers.
