Matt is an old friend from way back. He's an avid singlespeeder and very very handy down hill. He was keen to build some new XC wheels for his old singlespeed and came to us for this, his fourth set of XLR8 wheels.

Matt likes the Light Bicycle product and selected their 27mm wide 29er rim, that comes in at a scant 360g!

Brass nipples were used.
