Paul’s Mavic on DT Swiss

Posted on Posted in Customer builds

After having these rims kicking around for a personal project for months, I finally gave in and built them up for a customer than had been asking for something similar. Although having used my XCS carbon rims on several builds and being a big fan of them, he wanted something a tad more bling for a new Pinarello bike build. I suggested the Mavic Cosmic Pro SL’s laced to a set of DT Swiss 180 Carbon Ceramic hubs with CX-Ray spokes.

They weren’t the cheapest build, but they came out a lot lighter than the stock Mavic factory build. Needless to say Paul was very happy with them.

Tony’s DT Swiss on XCS

Posted on Posted in Customer builds

Tony from London went for the top end DT Swiss hubset – the 180 Ceramic Carbon’s and had me build them to a set of my XCS 5060 carbon rims with the front being 50mm deep x 25 wide and rear 60mm deep and 25mm wide. The wheels were laced with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples – radially on the front with 20 spokes and the rear 2X with 24 spokes. Total weight was 1635g

Mark’s DT Swiss on carbon

Posted on Posted in Customer builds

A couple of weeks ago I built a pretty sweet disc-brake wheelset for Mark in Sheffield. It was a pair of my XCS 38mm tubeless ready carbon rims laced to a set of DT Swiss 180 Carbon Ceramic hubs with thru-axle fitting that will be going on Mark’s Field Cycles custom-built frame. The wheels were laced up with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples – 24/28 and 2X/3X. Total weight came in at 1591g.
