Buy the hubs, but the most you will get with 28s is 3X. You can use 3x on the drive side rear (14 butted) and 2X (15 butted) on the off side rear and front if you want. Radial spoking voids the warranty (hah!) and is rough on the flanges and more likely to crack them. I'd LOVE a pair of those hubs if you find
a second set!
