Neil’s DT Swiss RR 411 rims on Bitex / SON hubs

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Neil from Hampshire was after a set of robust disc-brake wheels for riding around the lanes and gravel tracks of the New Forest with a dynamo for charging devices on longer rides. We went with a set of DT Swiss RR411 rims laced to a Bitex BX106R rear hub and SON Delux 12 front hub with silver Sapim D-Light spokes. The build came in at a stunningly light (for a disc dynamo build) 1899g.

Glenn’s DT Swiss wheelset

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Glenn from Nottingham came to me for a decent set of wheels to replace the standard fairly bulky set that came on his new bike. To keep within budget of under £400, he went with my suggestion of keeping it in the DT Swiss family and I built him a set of R460 rims laced up to 350 ‘Hugi’ Classic hubs and Sapim Race spokes in a 24/28 configuration. They weighed in at a fairly light 1762g.

Greg’s DT Swiss wheels

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Greg from London wanted a set of bomb-proof wheels for his gravel bike and I recommended a wheelset which he went for: DT Swiss RR521 rims laced to DT Swiss 350 thru axle hubs in a 28/32 spoke configuration with Sapim CX-Ray spokes and brass nipples. Greg also went for the 54T ratchet upgrade on the rear hub, making these very fast engaging and perfect for racing. They weighed in at 1837g.
