My work, your wheels

End of December, Christmas break & New year... it's time to slow down, take take some break, summarize the current year and make plans for the next one.
I personally like this time a lot. 

Using this opportunity I wanted to share with you how do I make my wheels so you understand a bit what is happening behind the scenes. 
I think it's really important for you too see how the wheels are made @ my workshop so when you take one you ride them with full confidence and smile on your face.

Ready for the story? So let's get started :-)

Mountain wheels for Mark

Mark found me via google and contacted me regarding the wheels project. He was looking for light and price attractive wheels for his mountain bike. He is a beginner and rather rides on easy trails, without extreme jumping nor bombing down hills...

After few emails exchanges I decided to make him the wheels from the following components:
  • BOR XMD 333 rims, 650 size with offset
  • Shimano Deore XT hubs (15x100, 12x142)
  • DT Swiss Competition black spokes
  • Sapim silver brass 12mm nipples
