Mike's Orange Project 321 on Spank Vibrocore rims

Mike's Orange Project 321 on Spank Vibrocore rims

Mike specifically wanted an alloy rim build, with Project 321 hubs for his Norco. After some discussion he selected the new Spank Oozy Trail 350 Vibrocore rims. Vibrocore is a biodegradable foam Spank injects into the rim. It reduces vibrations and Trail " noise". And it works! Spank states that “the low density, pressurised core performs a similar function to the soft tissue inside bones, increasing inner wall strength and absorbing vibrations.” It is also available as an option in their range of handlebars as well. Of course, Sapim Race black spokes and brass nipples completed this build, being tough, light and...

Scott's Big FAT Heavy Hitters - Nextie and Project321

27.5 All Mountain Carbon Enduro Mountain Bike Wheel Builds Nextie Project321 Wheel Builds

Scott's Big FAT Heavy Hitters - Nextie and Project321

XLR8 rides with Scott whenever on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, where the trails are rocky, steep and very technical. Scott really wanted a lighter set of hoops for his 27.5+ Rocky Mountain - but they also had to be stiffer and lighter than the alloy hoops that came with the bike.Being a bit of a gear smasher, and not one for doing much maintenance, Project321 hubs are a wise choice. They are super tough, ultra reliable and have the fastest engagement he required for steep step ups and rock slabs. Even in black (they come in a wide array of cool...

David's Purple Project 321 SuperBoost on Spank Oozy Trail 350 rims

David's Purple Project 321 SuperBoost on Spank Oozy Trail 350 rims

David needed a tricky new wheelset for his Pivot 459. It uses a SuperBoost rear axle setup, so Project 321 hubs were the logical choice. They are beautifully machined out of top quality alloys, house excellent bearings, and have 216 points of engagement. And they come in Purple! David was keen on a premium alloy rim, so we recommended the Spank Oozy Trail 350. This is an updated version of their older 345 rim, that is a tiny bit wider, and a bit lighter. Tough and look great as well. David is fairly light and a smooth rider, so in...

Adam's Red Project 321 hubs on Nextie Asymmetric Carbon XC hoops

Adam's Red Project 321 hubs on Nextie Asymmetric Carbon XC hoops

Adam needed some new XC wheels for his Scott Spark. He had been checking out the Asian carbon wheel "trading houses", but was pleasantly surprised when we discussed our consultative process and pricing. We don't cost much more, for a wheelset that is specced for the rider, 100% Australian handbuilt, by people who love what they do! He could not resist the Project 321 Boost hubs in candy red (who can?) and seeing he prefers XC speed a 25mm internal width asymmetric carbon rim from Nextie was the light and tough choice. The Asymmetric drilling of the rim enables left...

Michael's Wheels for the rest of his life - Project 321 on Nextie Premium Carbon

Michael's Wheels for the rest of his life - Project 321 on Nextie Premium Carbon

Michael called with an unusual request - he wanted a pair of wheels to "last the rest of his life!". Just about to retire, and wanted wheels to suit his Yeti that are super reliable, and a modern width for his local rocky Canberra trails. He still rides pretty gnarly stuff, so we suggested the Project 321 hubs. He liked this idea as their Turquoise colour works well with his Yeti. They are also bombproof and have an industry leading 216 points of engagement! Not expensive either! We discussed rims for quite a while, and he agreed with our suggestion for...
