custom wheels keep on rolling…!

Yet another custom hand-built wheel to come out of the shop! This is going on one of my customers’ very much loved Surly Long Haul Trucker.

This one consists of a Schmidt SONdelux generator hub laced up to the tried & true Alex Adventurer rim with Wheelsmith double-butted spokes. It will be used to power the Busch + Müller Lumotec IQ Cyo Senso Plus headlight & Dtoplight XS Plus taillight. I ordered the hub & lights from, which is the US distributor of many excellent German products.

This is definitely the smallest generator hub I have seen. It may provide the coolest reflection of any hub I’ve seen, as well. It’s neat how the rounded profile creates a “chain-link fence” image with the spokes. You can even see all of the way to the back of the shop in the lower right of the hub!
