The lighting in my new shop is terrible for photography so I haven’t been blogging wheels lately. Follow me on Instagram for quick snapshots. But these wheels are so cool I just had to post:
The requirement for this build was a set of do-it-all road wheels for one helluva fit rider. That means training, some racing, gravel and whatever the day calls for. That means a preference for lightness without entering fragile territory. I put together this package of White Industries T11 hubs, H Plus Son Archetype rims and Sapim Laser spokes. The spoke count, 24 front and 28 rear combined with a light butted spoke help keep weight down. It’s still enough spokes and uses a stiff enough rim that they will be plenty resilient. For style points, check out the blue hub and matching alloy nipples.
