Just pre-ordered my limited edition All City Zona Nature Boy. $775 for frame and fork, available in August. Only 75 will be made.
Pirate...regarding the wider hub comment, not necessarily the case. It really comes down to the strength of the flanges and their width (not getting into axel thickness, etc.). If memory serves, I measured flange width on some of my hubs and the track hubs (at 120mm) had the widest flange width by a margin. I'd think this, along with the symmetrical build, would make for a strong wheel.
Note that MTB hubs are wider at 135mm, but often make room for a disc on one side and cassette on the other, so flange width is often pretty narrow.
There's a lot to consider with this, looking at spoke options and configurations, etc. Hard to have a solid 'rule,' unless you're comparing apples to apples with regards to wheel builds.
120mm versus 130mm hub spacing – Is it correct to say that 120mm is SS specific? That 130mm allows for extra spacing for a geared cassette? And that the advantage of running 130mm on a SS CX bike is that you can use a regular CX geared wheel with a swapped out cassette for SS? Hope this question makes sense!
