What better way to celebrate cyclocross season than with cross rim sale. It’s all about accelerating out of all those corners folks. So set yourself up for success with some new lightweight hoops to help get it done.
$60each While they last!
Stan’s Iron Cross-The first name in tubeless. Strong and fast!
Velocity Major Tom-Tubular profile to avoid pinch flats and burps. With or without a machined braketrack.
Velocity Blunt SL-A lightweight old school 29er race rim tubeless profile repurposed for use with disc brake cross wheels.
I can build any of these up for you with your choice of hubs. All three of these were regularly $80-90. Hubs are the big price variable. They go anywhere from $100-1000.
Fat bike hubs in stock. Aluminium shell and cassette body, cartridge bearing, 10 speed compatible.
Fronts 15x150mm. Rears 170 QR & 190mm with QR or 12mm. $95 pair
Velocity Blunt SL rims were designed as mountain bike race rims, years ago. The truth is, at 420g with a 25mm width they also make a great disc brake cross/gravel rim for today’s market. With the inner ramped profile, add tape and valves to use them tubeless. Unfortunately their production has been discontinued. Get em while they last. $65 each.
Blunt SL Profile
I keep 75-100 rims in stock to build wheels with. Lots of 700c road rims and tubeless 29er mtn rims cause they’re what sells, tubular rims for cross, some 650b’s, even 24″ rims for the kidos bike if you are looking for an easy way to shed some weight from their rig. I also have all the right length straight gauge/butted black or silver spokes to build them up with. It’s easy with a spoke cutter. If you need wheels there are the parts and knowledge here to get you rolling again.
This customer is going from rim to disc brake on his recumbent. 26″ disc brake rear wheels were easy for him to source. 16″ fronts, especially one with a Dynamo front not so much. Elephant Bikes took care of the welding on disc brake tabs part and I built the front wheels.
The Midnight Century is a Spokane, WA ride coming up the first weekend in August. Find the Cue sheet here. It’s a great ride to use a wheel built with a Dynamo hub. Dynamo hubs are great for producing power to run lights or anything with a USB plug. All that being said I’m offering 10% off Dynamo wheels for midnight century riders. It’s a dynamo deal.
I hand build wheels with both Shutter Precision and Schmidt Dynamo hubs.
Both come colors and all the different hub configurations (QR, fat bike, disc/rim brake…)
Stan’s latest, the Baron MK3 rims all built up and ready to go play! These were built with Boost spaced DT Swiss 350 hubs with an XD driver, and DT Swiss butted spokes. I did a work trade with the auto mechanic. The cost, a new clutch in my Vdub.
I have three customers traveling coast to coast across the US right now using wheels I built for them with dymano hubs. These power generating hubs are used for their lights and USB charging purposes. Ironically it looks like they will be traveling through WY together but separately over the next couple days.
Hank and Kathy will be touring the country by bike for the next year and a half. Their wheels are built to withstand the heavy loads of touring. You can follow their adventures here https://hankandkathygreer.com/.
Jason is on a different kind of adventure. He’s doing Trans Am. This is a solo, unsupported race across the country. Cause he wants to be light and fast I built his wheel using a Zipp 404 rim and bladed spokes. You can follow his progress here https://transambikerace.com/.
Light Bike Fat White!
Yes, I build with carbon rims. These were custom painted from Light Bicycle. Given the width of fat bike rims, (these are 80mm) carbon saves lots of weight. This customer is also going tubeless to save even more. The Rohloff hub turns a Gates belt drive. If that’s not enough it’s a wooden framed bike with a Lauf fork. Bling!
