It’s great when you get a huge rap via email from a new customer!

Stephen needed some new wheels for winter riding in Adelaide. Alloy was preferred, due to motivation often seeing him ride the rain with his small (but enthusiastic) “grupetto”.

Of course, the Adelaide Hills can be merciless, so low weight and good stiffness needed to be part of the package.

He came to us with an idea of what he wanted, and (lucky for him) we had an ex-demo wheelset sitting on the rack, that needed a new home. They just happened to be a perfect fit for what he wanted.

These wheels were built with silver XLR8 road hubs. Taiwanese sourced, these hubs are precision machined, come standard with US made Enduro ABEC5 grade sealed bearings, and a sturdy MTB spec freehub mechanism. The freehub is alloy, but in a harder alloy than most, so the problem of the cogs biting into the freehub has not been an issue in our experience.

Velocity Deep V rims in black with a machined sidewall are well proven – tough and stiff. Coupled with Sapim Race spokes and brass nipples, the wheels have an great classic look, and will prove to be very reliable.

So Stephen, what do you think ….

“Very very happy with them …. very very pleased and would definitely buy again.”

You won’t need to, these wheels should provide trouble free service for quite a long time!
