Ian’s Halo rims on Bitex hubs

Posted Posted in Customer builds
Ian from Chesterfield snapped up a great value for money wheelset – Halo Evuara tubeless ready rims (24mm wide and deep) laced to Bitex RA9/10 hubs with silver Sapim Laser spokes in a 24/24 configuration (stronger Sapim Race on the rear drive side). Total weight was 1450g.
These wheels are normally available in various spoke configurations for £316, or £330 taped up for tubeless with valves installed.

New workshop… a garage is better than a shed!

Posted Posted in Shop news

We moved house about a month ago and bought a larger house with a decent sized garage which was the idea for the wheel-building business. It’s in Borrowash on the outskirts of Derby. No more freezing winter nights and sweaty summer days slaving away at the truing stand. It’s taken a while to get it all set up the way I wanted, and works really well for me.


Greg’s DT Swiss wheels

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Greg from London wanted a set of bomb-proof wheels for his gravel bike and I recommended a wheelset which he went for: DT Swiss RR521 rims laced to DT Swiss 350 thru axle hubs in a 28/32 spoke configuration with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples. Greg also went for the 54T ratchet upgrade on the rear hub, making these very fast engaging and perfect for racing. They weighed in at 1837g.
