If you've been checking our blog for a while, you probably saw the previous Bling Build from South Africa's Calculus Bikes that we post a while back (you can see it here). We're really stoked on this latest one though because it's got some really cool things going on: flex stays make it a linkage-driven softail design, and the Cannondale Lefty Ocho fork with one of the very last of Chris King's Lefty hubs adds to the already sleek and unique look.
The Lefty Ocho Fork sure does give a great view of the front wheel!
When you're investing a hefty sum in a pair of top quality hand built wheels, getting the best value means a product that's not only high quality, built to last, easy to service and upgrade but also able to be used for many different types of ride / terrain.
This week's Zipp 303 / Chris King wheel build of the weeks ticks all these boxes and more.
This weeks build of the week is another all made-in-usa build gives super stealth performance in more ways that one.
Velocity Blunt SS rims are one we use frequently for a variety custom wheel builds here at AVT. Specifically designed to be best-in-class for cross country MTB use, the Blunt SS is equally at home on a gravel or urban bike.
