Neil’s DT Swiss on XCS Carbon

Posted on Posted in Customer builds

Neil from Alfreton originally sent me a set of carbon wheels on DT Swiss 240s hubs to have trued. I discovered cracks in the rims at the nipple eyelets and suggested having the wheels re-built onto a set of my XCS carbon rims. I recommended a deeper 44mm rear and shallower 38mm front rim for improved aerodynamics and handling. These were the 3K weave matt option, tubular and they were laced up with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples. Total weight came to 1227g.

Tom’s XCS Carbon on DT Swiss

Sponsored rider, Tom from Glossop went for another set of my carbon rim builds, but opted for some deeper 50mm rims over his previous 38mm rims for their added stiffness and aero advantages for sprint finishes. He also opted for DT Swiss 240s hubs for reduced weight and the de facto best spokes available for racing, Sapim CX-Ray. The total wheelset weight was 1563g. E/1/2 next season, Tom – go smash it!

Paul’s HED on DT Swiss

Posted on Posted in Customer builds

Last week I built a set of all-rounder wheels for Paul in Aston-on-Trent. They were HED Ardennes + rims (same as Belgium +) with a 20.6mm internal width, laced to DT Swiss 240s hubs 24/28 using Sapim CX-Ray spokes. Total weight before fitting tyres was 1570g. 

I also fitted a set of Vittoria Corsa Speed tubeless tyres using Stan’s NoTubes sealant and valves.
