    My new wheels [o] (wheel/tire xpost)

    I have finished my first UST wheels plus the replacement for the front wheel I folded a few weeks ago.

    All have Sapim CX-Ray spokes and alloy nipples, three use MAvíc XM819 disc rims

    and one an Ambrosia CX22 (the crash replacement).

    W T B Laserdisc Lite hubs and a Paul WORD for the singlespeed rear wheel. Stripped the factory stickers and applied sign vinyl before I laced the wheels. All use Galfer wavey rotors, 185 mm on the fronts and SS rear, 160 mm on the gearie rear. White Industries 21t ENO freewheel (SS) and XT 11-32 cassette (gearie).

    BTW the UST front wheel is just over 100g heavier the my old wheel with exactly the same parts except for a Velocity VXC rim.

    Thanks to Paul, the Mtn Pedaler, ( https://www.mtnpedaler.com ) for helping me with the parts.

    Yup. Spider Tubeless Light 2.30. The third UST wheel has a Scorpion Tubeless Light 2.00 mounted.

    them wheels sure are sexy

    I'm prone to call bikes like svelte sub 20 lb S bikes colored as damn sexy, but If I were a SS frame, I'd hit them at the first opportunity...
