Carbon for the people

Webmaster

A recent build using economical carbon rims from Light-Bicycle. I selected Sapim D-Light spokes and aluminum nipples to save weight without compromising durability. Came out great!

Road tubeless continued

White Industries T11 hubs mated to Stan’s Alpha 400 rims is a combination I’ve built (and ridden) in more than one incarnation. This set is put together with Sapim Laser spokes in the front and rear non-drive side, Sapim Race rounding out the rear. That puts total weight a hair over 1500 grams while remaining stiff enough for the rider. These wheels are setup tubeless with Stan’s tape and valves supporting Schwalbe Pro One tires in 700×28. A perfect combination top to bottom.
