Geoffrey wanted to upgrade the wheels on his Bianchi and we settled on a pair of Enve 3.4 rims. The red anodized White Industries hubs will matched the highlights on his bike, and to further personalize the wheels we added some Celeste decals and two red spokes.
Doug is building himself a new bike (as in, actually cutting and welding the tubes together) and he wanted a pair of nice wheels for it.
He’s building the bike around an Alfine 11 speed rear hub. We matched this up with a DT Swiss 240s centerlock front hub to keep the weight down.
Stan’s Crest rims will accept a road or cyclocross tyre.
DT Swiss Aerolites keep things light and aero.
Brendan wanted a light weight pair of track wheels for his daughter but there isn’t much off-the-shelf.
We laced up a pair of Velocity Major Tom rims in high polished silver to some EZO track hubs. The front wheel is 20 hole radial, the rear is 24 2-cross. The rear hub is double-sided with track threads (rather than a freewheel) on both sides….very nice.
Polished DT Swiss Aerolites with two red spokes at each valve hold everything together.
1562g for a set of junior-legal track wheels is fantastic!
Nigel already has a pair of 52mm Rails which he’s using as race / event wheels but they’re so good he wanted to ride them every day! A 34mm front wheel will give Nigel a bit more flexibility – the shallower rim is lighter and better behaved in crosswinds so will allow Nigel to comfortably use these wheels for daily training and hilly races.
We used the same hub and spokes as his existing wheelset and of course matched the custom decals.
Guy has put in the miles on his bicycle with a Shimano Nexus 8 speed rear hub from new and was well past time to replace the rim. The rim was the most worn / concave rim we have seen here at Wheelworks HQ for quite some time, I’m still unsure how it did not explode with the tyre on !!
The Shimano wheel was a 24 hole and is laced a bit differently to what we normally see here. We fitted the used hub to a DT Swiss RR585 rim with Black DT Swiss Competition spokes and Black brass spoke nipples.
Hiro’s Chris king ISO hubs in limited edition sour apple green, Derby HD 29″ wide carbon rims, DT Swiss Aerolite spokes and alloy spoke nipples. White spokes at the valve and Lava Gray decals.
