Andy’s Bitex on Carbon

Posted Posted in Uncategorized

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.

Alistair’s Pacenti on Bitex

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Alistair from London wanted a low-cost good set of replacement wheels for his old Pacenti SL23’s and I suggested going for the rims that have replaced the SL23’s – Pacenti’s Forza rims. 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.
