Alistair’s Venn carbon on Bitex

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Regular customer Alistair from London needed a set of decent quality carbon wheels for training and racing that weren’t going to cost the earth. Therefore he went with a set of Venn Cycling 50.7mm carbon clincher / tubeless ready rims laced up to Bitex RAF9 / RAR10 hubs with Sapim CX-Ray spokes. These rims are internal nipple versions which improve aerodynamics and have a lovely clean look. The wheelset weighs in at 1548g and priced at £788.

Ian from Chesterfield snapped up a great value for money wheelset – Halo Evuara tubeless ready rims (24mm wide and deep) laced to Bitex RA9/10 hubs with silver Sapim Laser spokes in a 24/24 configuration (stronger Sapim Race on the rear drive side). Total weight was 1450g.
 
These wheels are normally available in various spoke configurations for £316, or £330 taped up for tubeless with valves installed.

Andy’s Bitex on Carbon

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Andy from Nottingham wanted a light set of tubeless carbon wheels for racing on next year and chose a set of Light Bicycle 25mm front and 35mm rear rims laced to a set of super-light Bitex hubs. I used Sapim Laser spokes on the front to keep both costs and weight down, but used Sapim CX-Ray on the rear and brass nipples throughout. I also fitted for Andy a set of Schwalbe Pro One tubeless tyres with Stans valves and sealant. The set without tyres ended up weighing 1356g.

Laced up with a set of value for money light weight Bitex RAR9 / RAR10 hubs and Sapim Laser spokes (Sapim Race on the rear drive side) laced 20/24, the build came in at 1487g and cost him £374 for the set.
