We passed Dave at speed on the local trails. He called out and we caught up briefly - he needed a new rear wheel.

He wanted a wider rim to hold the tyre sidewalls better, for more cush and grip. The Spank Oozy Trail 295 is the current alloy rim of choice - nicely finished, 25mm wide internal, 30mm external, and well priced.

We rebuilt his Giant hub onto one of these using Sapim Race double butted spokes and brass nipples, for a high performance economy solution.
