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.

Alistair’s Venn carbon on Bitex

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Regular customer Alistair from London needed a set of decent quality carbon wheels for training and racing that weren’t going to cost the earth. Therefore he went with a set of Venn Cycling 50.7mm carbon clincher / tubeless ready rims laced up to Bitex RAF9 / RAR10 hubs with Sapim CX-Ray spokes. These rims are internal nipple versions which improve aerodynamics and have a lovely clean look. The wheelset weighs in at 1548g and priced at £788.
