Mark’s DT Swiss wheels with Cannondale AI offset

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Mark from London  was after a build for his Cannondale SuperX cross bike and needed the wheels to be dished according to Cannondale’s specifications for their AI frame settings. The point of this is to un-naturally give the non-drive side extra tension to bring it closer to the tension of the drive side and compensate for the odd dish from an 10/11-speed freehub.

The build was a little tricky to get spot on, but with a bit of instruction directly from Cannondale, I managed to offset the rear wheel spot on for Mark. It was built with DT Swiss components – 350 hubs and the new RR421 rims with 20mm internal width. Laced up with the Sapim CX-Ray spokes 28/28, they weighed in at 1626g.

Mark’s DT Swiss + SON wheels

Mark from York wanted a sturdy and super reliable set of hand-built thru-axle disc-specific wheels for riding the 2017 London Edinburgh London (LEL) 1400km (800+ miles) audax. I went with my favourite hubs and rims suggestion which was a DT Swiss 350 142 x 12mm thru axle rear and SON Delux 12 front dynamo laced to DT Swiss 411 disc rims with Sapim Race spokes in a 32/32 3X configuration. The wheels came out just under 2kg. Best of luck to Mark!
