Chris from Derby asked me to build him a dynamo disc-brake wheel to use with another carbon build I did for him earlier this year which would allow him to run either a standard non-dynamo front wheel for day rides or a dynamo front wheel for winter and night riding. The result was a 32-spoke SON Delux with 12mm thru-axle laced to a 38mm XCS carbon rim using Sapim CX-Ray spokes. Total weight came in at just over a kilogram.
