more more more hand-built wheels…

Here are some more hand-built wheels to come out of the shop this winter for some fine people!

Here is a Shimano Alfine generator hub laced up to an Alex Adventurer with Wheelsmith double-butted spokes. An XT disc rotor is mounted to the hub for year-round commuting purposes!

Another Shimano generator hub laced up to an Alex Adventurer rim with Wheelsmith double-butted spokes.

1-25-2013 001 (Large)
Here is a beefy commuter wheel that should be a ‘set it & forget it’ component. It’s a Shimano Deore hub laced up to a Sun Rhyno Lite rim with 36 Wheelsmith straight-gauge spokes. The driveside spokes are silver, whilst the non-driveside are black. This results in a nice alternating black/silver pattern at the rim!

This is the front of a wheelset for a Surly Long Haul Trucker to be ridden year-round. It has yet another Shimano generator hub laced up to an Adventurer rim. It is using black DT alpine spokes to keep the hub married to the rim. A 700x40mm Nokian studded tyre is all business!

2-08-2013 047 (Large)
Here is the rear. It has a Shimano SLX hub laced up to an Adventurer rim using the same spokes as the front. A 700x35mm 45North tyre provides the push.
