|JM came to me looking for a versatile, lightweight wheelset that would not slow him down on training rides over the rolling hills of Maryland nor on the cyclocross race course come fall/winter.|
|Shimano Dura Ace hubs utilize loose angular contact bearings giving their hubs amazing smoothness, longevity and serviceability. The rear wheel I laced with DT Swiss Competition on the drive side and DT Swiss Revolution on the non-drive side.|
|The Mavic Reflex CD rim utilizes double eyelets and offers a very nice, milled braking surface which improves braking friction and also reduces shuddering.|
|The FH-7900 free-hub body is fabricated from titanium. Shimano and White Industries are two brands who seem to be adamant about reducing cassette body mauling.|
|Shimano hubs shells are fabricated from cold-forged aluminum and are anodized (yes, anodized) to a mirror finish. Sexy and strong.|
|Shimano Dura Ace hubs use both labyrinth and contact seals. These will surely keep at bay the grit and grime found on North East roads.|
|I summarize each coded wheel's specifications to a small, laminated card included with each new wheelset order.|
|Building to specification rules. |
PSS: For your next set of custom wheels; call me.
PSSS: this wheelset costs $850 with shipping included. No hidden fees. Those are so annoying....
