Colin in Sydney wanted a pair of wheels which would be suitable for daily riding on a new stainless steel bike.
The Hed C2 rims have a fantastic ride quality and build up really well. They’re getting harder to get which is a real pain and I’ll be looking for a good substitute.
Polished Chris King R45 hubs and polished DT Swiss Aerolite spokes are modern and high-tech but add a touch of old-school class to the wheelset.
The front wheel uses 24 radial laced spokes with aluminium nipples. The rear wheel is built with brass nipples and 32 spokes, 3-cross.
This is a great looking pair of wheels.
