Our service department just finished building this unique wheelset for a regular customer looking to replace a wheelset lost in an accident. We recommended Mavic rims, since the customer had v-brakes on the bike and Mavic still makes a high quality 26″ rim. Since he wanted light and strong hubs we set him up with a set of DT Swiss mountain hubs, and for color, red anodized spoke nipples. The bike is primarily seeing duty as a city commuter. We just got in a huge order from Continental Tires and threw on a set of Ultra Gatorskins. It’s not every day we get to build a wheelset of this caliber, and this is one that’s sure to be bombproof. If you’re looking to upgrade your ride we have several wheelbuilders on staff who are able to make recommendations and give a free estimate.
