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.
Luxurious carbon build for Dan in London: Chris King R45 Ceramic bearing hubs in Pewter colour scheme laced 24/28 to XCS 38mm deep x 25mm wide carbon rims with Sapim CX-Ray spokes. Total weight: 1563g.
ENVE re-build for Jonny in Berkshire: ENVE SES 3.4 rims laced to silver Chris King R45 ceramic bearing hubs with Sapim CX-Ray spokes using internal brass nipples – 2X rear and radially front. Total weight: 1472g.
Fast race build for James in Surrey: Chris King R45 ceramic bearing hubs on 50mm x 25mm carbon clincher rims laced 28-spoke rear and 3X/ 24-spoke front and 2X with Sapim CX-Ray spokes. Total weight 1657g. At £1158 (or cheaper with mates rates) a set, these are serious Shimano C50 killers. With a 20/24 spoke configuration, they would weigh in at 1600g dead. Tubular version 1440g.
