Alistair is a kiwi Expat clocking the miles up in Sydney and came to us late last year looking for a pair of wheels after the guys over at Wheelhaus recommended he come and see us about getting some custom built carbon hoops
Black t11s on black and white decals very nz. “Kia Kaha” Alistair. enjoy.
Ben and his wife came to us looking for a durable and comfortable road wheelset that could so do it all over any terrain.
The Pacenti SL23 was the obvious choice for its wide rim profile allowing varied tyre style and pressure options laced up around our classic bombproof T11 hubs
With matching Moots RSls at home these wheels are going to fit right in.
Meet our brand new carbon wheel.. The Maker paired up with a one-off set of purple T11s.
About 7 months ago we started designing a carbon rim from a wheelbuilders prospective. We’ve built a lot of wheels over the 9 years of running Wheelworks so we get to see what works, what doesn’t and what we’d like to see in a rim.We worked with one of the “big three” carbon manufactures to have this rim produced, and after a few prototypes and samples we went ahead with production. The result is the Maker. We’ve got them in a 35mm and 50mm deep version, and although we’re obviously biased we think they’re awesome :-)
There is some more info on the Maker here:
Tristan picked up these stunning one of a kind purple hubs up last year whilst over in California visiting the White Industry factory, This set where the first purple colour check set that would normally have the CNC machining for the White Industry’s logos done post anodizing rather than before and Jake at White Industry’s kindly let him have them. They look even better in the flesh.
Mike is a long time customer of ours and has a built and rebuilt a few wheelsets
Over the 8 years he has learnt that bribery gets you nowhere, except if its delicious.
Thanks for the oreo’s Mike, and keep enjoying your wheels, may they bring you many KOM’s (F*%^ Strava)
Rims: Derby xc 29er 35mm wide
Hubs: Rohloff and SP dynamo front hub
Spokes: DT Swiss Aerolite
Decals: Lava Grey
Andy came to us looking for a new wheelset for his Single speed Salsa El Mariachi, the wheels needed to be stiff, strong and super reliable.
With a Rohloff rear hub running 14 internal gears for unparalleled durability and SP dynamo front hub there is nowhere this wheelset wont be able to go built up around our mega stiff and 29inc wide derby rims will allow Andy to run lower pressures more comfortably during those long days in the saddle
Stuart wanted some robust wheels for his commuter bike, but something high performance enough for taking the long way home and enjoying the bike (rather than some tank-like wheels which just sap the soul)
To keep the cost down we used Shimano’s Ultegra 6800 11 speed hubs and round-section DT Swiss Competition spokes. To keep the performance high we used Pacenti SL23 rims.
Ben’s an ex-pat Kiwi living in Sydney and he wanted a new pair of do-all wheels for his Cannondale Synapse.
We used the White Industries T11 hubs in their beautiful blue colour and matched them to blue spoke nipples.
Pacenti’s SL23 rims will be comfortable and durable on Sydney’s roads.
DT Swiss Aerolite spokes hold everything together with our lifetime guarantee against broken spokes.
