    Mango King Blilng

    Hey MTBR,

    We built these up last week for a gentleman up in Massachusetts. Orange is my favorite color, so these were fun!

    Turned out beautiful. We used Sapim Force spokes to lace the King hubs to the WTB i25 rim. The Force spokes are Triple butted with extra material at the J-Bend to make the spoke stronger. The cool thing is that it does not weigh any more than a standard double butted spoke. The orange alloy nipples match the hubs nicely accent the build.

    Overall, you have an incredibly strong and good looking wheelset!

    not super blinged out but the red nipples are enough for me. I think the frame is bright enough.

    Pink Bling!

    Hey guys,

    Here is a great looking set of Industry 9 Torch Classic Hubs laced to WTB KOM rims with Sapim Force Spokes and Black alloy nipples. This wheelset was built with the intent to get noticed. Its going on a black anodized Canfield Yelli Screamy with a black RS Pike fork. The wheels will stand out and look so good against all that black!

    Its pretty hard to beat 120 points of engagements in these hubs. I used to think that Chris King hubs are fast, but at 72 POE vs 120 POE, there is really no comparison

    Enjoy the pics.

    Yes, these are the 'pink' hubs. They look a little more pink in person.

    I absolutely love my KOM rims. They are my favorite AM-Enduro style rim.

    My last build I did for myself was pretty much exactly what you describe. I used Force spokes vs the d-light. Other than that, they were the same. They turned out sick!
    Good luck with your build and make sure and post pics!

    Orange Industry 9 blling

    Hey Guys,

    These turned out pretty trick. The orange of the hubs match the orange nipples perfectly! Triple butted Force Spokes laced to WTB KOM rims. This is headed out to Minnesota and will end up on a Turner Flux!

    Enjoy!

    Black Beauties!

    Got these Chris King-WTB KOM wheels built up and shipped out to California for a gentlemen by the name of Mike. He wanted a classic looking wheelset that was stiff, light and would take some hard riding. I really like how the Silver spokes really stand out and frame the hubs. Good color choice Mike!

    Enjoy the pics

    Some new wheels for my lady! She's a lightweight and mostly rides paved trails, dirt roads, and the occassional bit of singletrack. She's got an entry level Giant hardtail that works fine for her needs, but at 32.5lbs (for an XXS woman's specific frame!) it's a tank. I knew new wheels and tires would drop some major weight, so here we are.

    The goal was low weight without spending a lot, and something that would look good. Shimano SLX hubs are low cost and decent quality, the Stan's Crest rims are really light, Revolution spokes and alloy nipples keep more weight off. The white rims were used for two reasons: they match her bike, and they're on sale (~50% off!!) 'cause Stan's is clearing out their inventory of white rims (I've got a few more in stock if anyone's looking for a set). Silver spokes also match her bike, and the purple nipples add a little color.

    The set weighs in at 1,585g and combined with new Small Block 8 tires (set up tubeless of course) we knocked 3.2lbs off her bike!

    Probably the least blingy in this thread; I'm too cheap to afford anodized nipples or black spokes. My first hubset that didn't come pre-built: Hope Pro2 EVOs on Sun MTX-33s.
