Phil and CK are both great hubs. I personally like DT Swiss hubs though. I've used 350 and 240 hubs and both are really nice hubs with great bearings and don't require as much m...

I use DT Competition double butted for just about every wheel build that I do. Great price and quality. i would also go with DT Pro Lock brass nipples.

You probably need a spacer in between the wedge and the bearing cover. It sounds like the cover is bottoming out on the frame before you can get the proper preload on the bearin...

Open Pros are too narrow just like anything from Mavic if you want bigger tires than a 25mm. Look for a wheelset with a wider internal width like Hed Belgiums or H Plus Son Arch...
