    Red is rad

    Here are a set of DH Industry Nine hubs we laced up to Spank Spike Evo 35AL's. With the rim being 35mm wide, it makes for an extremely stiff wheel. This is just the weapon you need on a 8" travel DH sled.

    Enjoy the pics

    Not terribly blingy, but a TOUGH set of wheels for a big guy who likes to shred. He picked up a set of new Ice Tech rotors with the wheels (he was having trouble overheating the stock rotors), and sent me this email this morning:

    "Hi Dustin,

    Just wanted to let you know I got a chance to try out the new wheels yesterday. They are awesome! I hit one of our most technical areas here in the bay area (Skeggs Point) and crashed down about 2000 ft of elevation drop. The wheels performed great, felt really solid, and I really noticed a difference in the roll of the wheels, which I was not expecting. I was with a buddy, and when we would tip over the top of a hill or any section where it would open up and we would totally release brakes, I was quickly rolling away from him and I could really feel the difference in acceleration. They also felt fantastic during the long ass climb on fire roads back up the mountain. The new disc brakes worked great too, still got hot as hell, but didn't smoke or turn colors like my last discs.

    And, when I got back, I spun my wheels and took a close look... perfectly straight and true. I'm totally stoked."

    36H Flow EX rims, Hope Pro 2 Evo hubs, DT Swiss Competition spokes on the front and Alpine III on the rear. Silver brass nipples all around. Bomber!

    The Alpine III spokes are tripple butted and use a 2.34mm diameter gauge at the elbow, it adds very little weight but increase durability and fatigue life. Good choice for bigger abusive riders.

    These are more stealth than blingy, but that's how I like them! Crappy pictures, sorry! Derby 40mm 27.5 rims and DT Swiss 240 hubs, both de-badged! Built by the man, MC. Now I just need some new 27.5+ tires!

    My LBS is known for incredibly detailed custom builds. Wheels get a lot of attention. Here's the most recent example. The owner just built his Knolly Warden, and here's a photo of one of the wheels from his build. Enve M70s, DT Swiss 240s, orange DT Champions, and notice the custom decals on the hub and fork.

    Lets see some blinged out wheelsets..I9,CK,Hope..anything goes!-stevesenve.jpg

    A link to the build is here.

    The shop demo bike is a SB66, and it's wearing wheels with spokes custom painted to match the Yeti turquoise.

    There are quite a few other examples that I can think of, but don't have photos of. Some are outrageous, like the 'rainbow vomit' wheels on his DJ, which used every spoke color he had in the shop. Some are subtle, like the gold and white spokes to match a friend's V10 frame. And some have a foot on each side of the line, like the wheels he did that fade from yellow to orange to red.

    Blue bling!!

    Hey MTBR,

    I built these up for myself late Thursday night and neglected to take pics of just the wheels due to a little re-occupation with getting them mounted up on my bike!!

    Here are some of the post-mount pre-ride pics. I think the blue Kings are my new favorite color

    Enjoy the pics

    Will got his Nox/Chris King wheels with the black and white spokes all set up on his S-Works Enduro. This thing is ballin' out of control! He'll be taking a trip to France to race the Megavalanche Alpe d Huez on this bike. Color me jealous...

    Using a proper size spoke wrench is critical when working with alloy nipples. Lots of repairs I've done wheels come in with rounded off or collapsed nipples because someone used a wrench that was too big.

    High quality spoke wrench, that is the right size (there should be very little play) is the key. A Park Tool size zero is good for most alloy nipples, it's the black one. I've also found that 4-sided wrenches work best.

    This is my favorite wrench I've tried. Fits the hand well, smooth finish, heavy and solid. It's 4-sided, so it drops down onto the nipple, you can't come in from the side.

    That Park wrench is the exact one I use, and have used it on thousands of alloy nipples. I build mostly with DT Swiss spokes and nipples, but the few wheels I've done with Sapim that wrench worked fine. Maybe your wrench had a defect or something?

    mine didnt fit when I first got it either, it was VERY tight and id have to force it on. I took it to an old wheelset with scratched nipples, used it on half a dozen nipples, then took it back to the wheelset I was building, and it fit perfect.

    The SW-1 is sized for .130 (3.30mm) nipples.



    Use this size for Sapim 14mm Black Brass...

    I have a navy King headset and love the color. How does the industry 9 blue compare with King Navy? Close enough?
