Good all-round quality alloy build for Stuart in Slough: HED Ardennes (Belgium Plus) rims laced to Shimano Dura-Ace hubs with Sapim CX-Ray spokes. Total weight: 1613g
Following on to my gushing on Aaron Gwin’s downhill run on DT’s EX471 rims sans tyres, I’ve built a set for Dan. Laced with Sapim Race spokes 3X throughout on Shimano’s solid Deore XT hubs, this will make a lovely set of MTB wheels. 26-inch for the rear and 27.5-inch for the front to fit the customer’s bike.
High end Pacenti wheelset for Tom: Shimano Dura Ace hubs on Pacenti SL23 built 32H rear and 28H front – 3X drive side rear and 2X non-drive + front using Sapim CX-Ray spokes.
H Plus Son TB14 rims used for Gavin’s rebuild using an old set of Shimano 105 hubs which are still in good nick (with a bit of bearing preload adjustment). Built 32-spokes and 3X throughout using DT Competition stainless steel spokes.
Audax ready build for Johan in Sweden: Pacenti SL23 rims on Shimano Dura Ace FH-9000 11-speed rear hub and SON28 dynamo front hub built 32H and 3X throughout with Sapim Race black spokes. Also included an Ultegra 11-28 cassette and Schmidt Edelux II headlight.
A shiny silver polished hand-built wheelset for Gavin: H Plus Son Archetype with Shimano 105 hubs. 32 spokes in each wheel and 3X lacing throughout.
H Plus Son Archetype rims arrived last week and I’ve been merrily building wheels this week. Lacing to Chris King, Novatec and Shimano hubs.
Also available from this week: fresh new disc brake cross wheels – Pacenti SL25 rims laced to Novatec D771/772 from £320.
