Every year Brendan is lucky enough to buy a new bike, and every year we are his choice for the new hoops for his new rig.
This year Brendan bought another Norco, but quickly identified that an upgrade to a model with factory carbon wheels would be 1) considerably more expensive, and 2) not really the kind of wheels he wanted anyway.
We recommended the new Zelvy 41mm wide 27.5 Enduro carbon rims. Consistently Zelvy produce great products, and the warranty is excellent – 5 years for manufacturing defects, and a lifetime (that’s your whole life) crash repair/replacement policy.
Again, Brendan opted for the Project 321 hubset – simply the finest MTB hubset available, with a Qr15 front and 142×12 rear axle.
Black Sapim Race spokes and black brass nipples were specced to ensure stiffness and ongoing reliability are paramount.
