Geoff's DT Swiss 240s Carbon wheel rebuild

Geoff has been running a Rockshox RS-1 on his Trek, but was unhappy with the reliability. He worked with our friends at Cyclinic and decided to migrate over to Fox.

Unfortunately the DT Swiss hub that was implanted in the OEM front wheel was not strictly compatible with the Boost standard. Rockshox had specified a unique hub for the RS-1. As a result, Geoff needed a rebuild to use his wheel in his new fork.

Into a DT Swiss carbon hoop, it was only natural to use a DT Swiss 240s hub. We used DT Swiss Competition spokes in black to complete the stealth look. Nice eh?
