Silver revival

Pictured below are two wheelsets built with 650b Pacenti Brevet rims, one built in March and another more recently. I was happy with the steadiness of the rims and would recommend them if they meet your needs. The first set uses Campagnolo hubs; SON and Shimano hubs on the second. The hubs were supplied by their owners except for the SON dynamo, which I provided. The Rene Herse (formerly Compass) tires were provided as well, an option for wheelbuilding customers.

Compass tires

I’ve been testing the new lightweight, supple tires from Compass Bicycle. The quick summary is I’m enjoying them. They come in a good variety of sizes and I’m pleased they measure true-to-size, which is common problem with some manufacturers.
