Grass is always greener on the CUSTOM side.

I still build wheels on occasion for friends and previous customers. Sometimes a custom wheel is what is required to meet all the demands of the rider the best way possible. Take this example of demands.
  • Single Speed specific for disc brakes
  • 29ER front rim
  • 650B rear rim
  • Look Wicked and be Strong and Light
My response was...
  • WTB Single Duty and Lite hubs which use a nice single speed specific freehub. Covers Strong and SS specific
  • Antifreeze Green Blunt rims from Velocity.  Covers matching rims in different sizes and looking wicked.
  • SAPIM CX-Ray spokes with SILS Sapim Integrated Locking System 14mm Alloy nipples.  Covers Light and Strong
The wheels are only just laced but here is a sneek peak...
