John got in contact when the original rear wheel from his GT Singlespeed died. It didn't last long.

He wanted a bombproof solution that would last. We specced the Hope Singlespeed/Trials rear hub and the Spank Oozy 295 Trail 29er rim. These are a light yet light alloy rim that's suitable for XC and Trail duties, and is nice and wide with an excellent tubeless ready profile. Of course the hub is a known quantity - utterly reliable and pretty light too.

Keeping things simple and tough, the wheel was built with custom cut DT Swiss Champion spokes and brass nipples. A tough 3x lacing pattern was used.
