Aaron's New E-Bike Wheel

Alex Rims Sapim Shimano Wheel Builds

Shimano Deore Centrelock Rear on Alexrims MD40 Angled by XLR8 Performance Bicycle Wheels

Aaron is part of the growing movement of hard hitting e-MTB bikers. He rides really hard (being an ex-motocrosser) and had demolished the original equipment rear wheel on his Merida.

We upgraded his rear hub to an e-bike specific Shimano Deore, and built it onto a tough Alexrims MD40 rim - a 40mm internal width "Plus" sized rim that works nicely with the 2.8" tyres Aaron prefers.

Plain gauge spokes, brass nipples and some sneaky nipple washers will ensure longevity for years to some.
