I'll pm him and see if he remembers where he might have posted the details.

Brents347 was one of the earliest spoke swaps that I know of.
He and I both used 950ADV hubs, custom rotor spacers for the front, custom hub spacers and Buchanan SS spokes.

Brake rotors have a myriad of solutions, but none of the stock rotors work on the ADV hubs.

His front got 310mm rotors (maybe from 625smc) and a 19" Excel rim. Mine got a 19" front rim, plus a 320mm rotor from 450SMR and caliper spacers from the SD990, to fit the larger diameter rotor. The rear hub bolts right on, no custom work required. I first built my rear with a 5" rim to run 150/70, 160/60 or 170/60 sized tires. I found that I really only run 150/70 so I changed to a 4.25" wide rim and superlaced it (cross three and 90* spoke angle).

If there is real interest, PM me and I can cover ALL the particulars!
