Liam has an obsession with oil slick as you can probably tell
He built his own 650 FLITE wheels for his Transistion patrol and spend hours doing the decals so they were perfect. The vinyl is super thick so proved a bit of a nightmare to stick down but the results show the effort was worth it
We didn’t commission a wind tunnel test when we designed Maker – instead, we used our 10 years of practical, first-hand experience building high-performance wheels from Enve, Zipp, DT Swiss and more. We know our stuff. We’re so confident in Maker rims, they come with a lifetime guarantee which to the best of our knowledge is the only carbon rim in the world to do so. They are designed to be ridden and yes these are a damn-expensive pair of bicycle wheels so we encourage you to put them on your bike and use them – they don’t belong on a hook in the garage.
For Johns wheels we used the Superlight SL Maker rim laced up to the Dial hubs
Not simply content with offering industry-leading hubs from DT Swiss, Hope, Chris King and White Industries we have developed our own high end hubset.
Wheelworks DIAL hubs are named after their precision freehub body which sounds like the dial on a bank vault. Internally machined axles keep the weight down to a svelte 84 grams front and 242 grams rear (the same as a DT Swiss 240)
It rains a lot in New Zealand so we spec’d top of the line stainless steel bearings hidden behind low-friction seals to ensure long-running performance and we use angled flanges, a feature found on only the highest quality hubs, to ensure better spoke durability and this is reflected in our lifetime spoke
