New hub and rim options

New hub and rim options

I just finished up a couple of wheel builds, that nicely highlight some more recent additions to the custom wheel options.

I have been using the Italian Carbon-Ti hubs for a little while – they are one of the best balances of weight/durability/price. The straight pull road hubs come in at 62g for the front and 160g for the rear. Here I have two builds around this hubset – the first with the excellent Enve 4.5 clincher rims for a great do-it-all wheelset. These weigh in at 1424g for the pair.

The second build is my first time building with FSE rims. These are filament wound and promise good strength and light weight. They have a full range of rims – featured here is their lightest, which is a 25mm deep tubular. With the Carbon-Ti hubs and Sapim cx-ray spokes, these come in at 1022g.

Please just give me a shout if you would like a quote for a custom wheelset.
