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.

Mark’s DT Swiss + SON wheels

Mark from York wanted a sturdy and super reliable set of hand-built thru-axle disc-specific wheels for riding the 2017 London Edinburgh London (LEL) 1400km (800+ miles) audax. I went with my favourite hubs and rims suggestion which was a DT Swiss 350 142 x 12mm thru axle rear and SON Delux 12 front dynamo laced to DT Swiss 411 disc rims with Sapim Race spokes in a 32/32 3X configuration. The wheels came out just under 2kg. Best of luck to Mark!

With the UK’s premier audaxing event, London Edinburgh London, taking place this summer, I’ve been asked for quite a few dynamo builds, most of which I’ve not had the chance to take photos of, though here are some I did manage to photograph before sending during April and May:

Greg’s DT Swiss RR511 32mm deep rim laced to a SON 28 with silver CX-Ray spokes.

 

Charlotte’s Mavic Open Pro rim laced to an SP Dynamo PV-8 with black Sapim Race spokes.

 

 Mark’s Ryde DP Comp Disc rim laced to an SP Dynamo PD-8 with black Sapim Race spokes.
