### 2X on high flange hubs?

Posted:

**Mon Oct 15, 2018 1:58 pm**I've got a set of 27" wheels I ripped apart due to badly corroded spokes. The time has come to consider rebuilding them.

Shimano 80's HC-110 HF hubs: http://velobase.com/ViewComponent.aspx? ... 0&AbsPos=2

Ukai 27 x 1 1/4 rims (dead ringers for the Araya 16A): http://velobase.com/ViewComponent.aspx? ... 7&AbsPos=0

Is 2X (2X front, 2X NDS/3X DS) going to lead to weird angles on the spoke/flange interface for the 2X patterns? I know the high flange were more suited to 3X and even 4X. These ones were previously laced 4X, for a bomb-proof set on the tourer they came on.

Given the hubs, the front and NDS are all the same length for the same lacings. I've done a 2X/3X mix road wheel for low flange Campag hubs, turned out nice once I got my head around the hole offsets.
