I just bought a new Specialized Allez Sprint and would like to build some nice wheels for it.
What spoke count should I go for? 24/24?
I’m 180 lbs and will use the bike for lots of group rides and crits and road races.
The build I’m going with is:
Hubs: Industry 9 Torch Classic Road
Rims: HED Belgium C2
Spokes: Sapim Cx-Ray Bladed
Tires: GP5000 25mm
What spoke count should I go with? What’s the trade off for going with more/less other than aesthetics?
Does anyone here have experience with HED C2+ Rims on the Allez Sprint? I’m planning on going with the Belgium C2 because I’m worried about the C2+ not fitting.
Thanks for any help!
