This is a set of wheels similar in many respects to a build blogged previously. The rims are the same but the weight is about 1% more at 1520 grams. That’s in spite of lighter hubs and eight fewer spokes, which goes to show counting grams is not the same as counting spokes. This build uses a mix of Sapim Race and Sapim Laser spokes to deliver the stiffness required.
These wheels will get two layers of Stan’s yellow tape and Stan’s road tubeless valve stems, which I sell. They’re getting the updated Schwalbe One tubeless rubber in a 25mm width. Very nice!
