Not all rims play nice with superboost hubs either. A consideration many people miss. Heck, a lot of brands don't get drilling quite right for 148. If a rim doesn't allow spoke to articulate in a relatively straight line to the flange of the hub, you are bund for spoke/nipple/rim issues. The wider hubs get, the more trouble you see with this. There are some really well respected and loved rim companies out there, doing an absolutely crap job on drilling spoke holes, and don't understand the wheel building process.

Personally I don't like the idea of wider and wider back ends. Personally, I'll stick with boost 148.

The plus sized trend really has caused a lot of problems.

I don't like it either, but it shot up my nostalgia.
Reminds me of the Alpinestar we all wanted to have back in the day.
