It is my understanding that a dished wheel built around a cassette hub will not be as strong as a symmetrical wheel built around a SS specific hub. I am assuming identical rims, spokes, and spoke count. So, given identical rims and spokes, would a wheel built around a 28h symmetrical SS hub be stronger, weaker, or the same strength as a wheel built around a 32h cassette hub?
If the 28h SS build is the same strength or stronger then I would save ~28g and a whole $5 by going with fewer spokes.
Would love to hear from any experienced wheel builders out there.
