Jon’s DT Swiss and SP Dynamo

Posted Posted in Customer builds

Jon from Bristol came to me for a set of wheels that would be capable of being reliable year-round for high mileage and for doing audaxes and winter duty. I recommended my favourite all-rounder rims, DT Swiss RR440’s (asymmetric rear) with 32-spokes and a SP Dynamo PV-8 dynamo hub up front and DT Swiss 350 Classic rear hub. Laced with Sapim D-Light spokes (Sapim Race rear drive side), the build came in under 2kg total.

Paul’s DT Swiss and SP Dynamo

Paul from Liverpool wanted a rugged set of wheels that would be strong enough to handle the mileage of audax / randoneer riding but also light enough to make molehills out of mountains. As he was using disc brakes and thru-axles, I suggested a set of DT Swiss RR411 DB rims laced to a DT 350 142 x 12mm rear hub and SP Dynamo PD8-X 100 x 15mm dynamo hub using Sapim CX-Ray spokes. The result was a solid wheelset that came to 1927g.
