    Anyone a Lakers Fan?

    Although these are not carbon or extremely light, I think they fit the BLING BLING criteria

    A nice SS wheelset and a burly rear wheel left the shop this week, both headed to CO.

    This wheel was built for a customer well into Clyde territory. He's had problems with wheels going out of true and freehubs failing. We used a Chris King hub because their Ring Drive mechanism is super strong and handles high torque loads better than many other designs. We paired it to a Flow EX rim because it's wide, strong, and available in 36H drillings. DT Swiss Competition spokes were used laced 3-cross on the driveside and 4-cross on the non-driveside. The 3-cross lacing uses slightly shorter spokes which should be a bit stiffer laterally, and the 4-cross lacing transfers torque better since it's more tangential to the hub flange. Brass nipples for ultimate durability.

    This wheel will eventually find itself on a custom WaltWorks 29er.


    4-cross like a boss.


    This SS wheel is headed to Littleton, CO. I9 hubs with the SS specific rear, and KOM rims.


    I really need one of these for myself


    The 4D drilling on the WTB rims results in some really straight spoke lines going into the nipples.

    Blue on Blue Bling!

    These are for a customer down in SoCal for his Santa Cruz Bronson. I am loving the blue on blue!

    We used Hope Pro II hubs laced to WTB Frequency i25 rims with Sapim Force triple butted spokes and blue Sapim alloy nipples. Made for a very strong and stiff wheel for a 230 pound pilot. We went with the stainless freehub body to withstand the power of his massive legs

    Green Bling

    Here is a pretty sweet blingin' wheelset we build for a guy out of Northern Nevada. Heavier fella that wanted the Stainless freehub body. Black rim, black spokes and black nipples really make the hub stand out. Hope you enjoy some bling shots

    Hey MTBR,

    Remember the 80's? If you didn't know already, Purple is the new black! Built these up for an endurance athlete out of California. Enjoy

    Red hubs, silver spokes = classy. These are going onto a Moots, should look fantastic. Pacenti TL28 rims.

    Another set of KOM rims shipping out today, headed to Kansas. Love the deep blue color on the Hopes.





    A few thoughts on the KOMs:
    -The angled spoke drilling is very nice, the spokes take a very straight path into the nipple.
    -The graphics are not removable - it's like they're printed directly onto the rims. This is kind of a bummer IMO.
    -The weights jump around some. Each set I've built had one rim that weighed about 20-25g less than the other.
