Greg’s DT Swiss wheels

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

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.

Nick’s HED on DT & SON

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Nick from London was after a set of wheels  that could be used for a number of purposes: audax, light touring and faster club runs, and budget was flexible. After my recommendation we went with best alloy rims available, HED Belgium Plus, laced to DT Swiss 240s rear hub and a SON 28 front hub with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples in a 32/32 3X configuration. Total weight was under 2kg – ideal for a dynamo-based wheelset.
