DARKSTAR - Wheelsets - Clothing. All Rider Specific.

The DARKSTAR will be offered as a limited, annual, custom, complete machine only, Luxe Wheelworks exclusive. The frames will be constructed from Columbus XCR tubing and fabricated by hand in Boston, MA.

I built this ENVE 2.65/DT Swiss 240/Sapim CX-Ray wheelset for an avid road and cyclocross racer who needed something fast and durable for year round use in both training and racing.






Everything in its right place. The Luxe Wheelworks Factory is taking shape. If you would like to visit, contact me and I'll give you the grand tour.

This HED C2/Alchemy ELF-ORC/Sapim CX-Ray wheelset was specc'd for a road centric enthusiast who wanted something light, strong and stiff, all with the convenience of a clincher design. This wheelset weighed in at paltry 1390g.











Last but certainly not least we have a choice HED C2/Chris King R45/Wheelsmith DB14 wheelset complete with Vittoria EVO CX tires and Vittoria Latex tubes. I fitted the tubes with Caffelatex for extra puncture resistance. These are for a big, burly field sprinter who can't be bothered with wheels that flex, fail or come out of true and must be of high quality and performance minded. ie: This cat needed custom. Note the relatively high 28/28 spoke count...







Back in Black! Euro-cut attire in four different sizes for all my people. Inquire within.
