Simon from London wanted a set of light carbon clincher wheels based around some top quality hubs for thrashing around on trips away in Yorkshire and the Lake District on his new bike. I suggested a set of XCS 30 tubeless rims laced 20/24 to Chris King R45 hubs, which he went with. The hubs were the fetching new Turquoise colour scheme and were laced up with Sapim CX-Ray black spokes and brass nipples. Total weight came in at 1478g.
A new back wheel for Rob in Derby: DT Swiss RR440 asymmetric rim laced to a DT 350 Classic hub with Sapim Race spokes – 32-spokes and 3X lacing. Total weight: 957g.
Fast and super-strong carbon 29er build for Clint in Mansfield (near Sherwood Pines – lucky guy): Hope Pro 4 thru-axle hubs laced with Sapim D-Light spokes 3X to 30mm wide asymmetric carbon XC rims. Total weight: 1835g.
Solid all-purpose riding wheels for Bill in London: DT Swiss RR440 Asymmetric rear rim and standard front built 28H rear 3X DS/2X NDS using Sapim Race and 24H front built radially on Sapim Laser using Novatec F582-SL and A291-SL hubs.
