Back in the saddle

Webmaster

We were able to navigate the supply drought, which resulted in this wheelset. Beautiful DT Swiss RR511 rims paired with Hope hubs. The rims impart a lot of stiffness due to their V-shaped profile and durability is maximised by using Sapim Force spokes.

Hope is a strategy

Webmaster

Hope hubs don’t have the tightest geometry or the lowest weight, but they’re solid kit for the money. I don’t sell them but they’re easy to find and I don’t mind building yours. Here are a couple of Hope wheelsets built this month — you might see them on the road in different parts of Alberta.

Silver mountain style

Webmaster

When I started mountain biking all spokes were silver. It’s not as common these days but I think we should bring this look back. This is a set I did last month — they look great.

Asymmetric rims

Webmaster

This build used DT Competitions to lace Hope Pro4 hubs to WTB Asym rims, in this case a 650b (27.5″) wheelset. Asymmetric rims aren’t strictly new but the number and variety of models on the market is improving. The idea is simple — spokes land to one side of the rim instead of the centre. This counteracts the natural asymmetry in rear wheels, resulting in more even tension. I’m a fan.
