We offer a wide range of wheels, both sourced from the likes of Enve, Chris King and Astral, and our own AVT Works custom wheelbuild service. But there are times when even our custom options won't quite get you the wheelset you've been dreaming of.  At times like those, just get in touch, because we're always happy to get a different spoke, rim, or nipple so that you get the wheels you really want.

Chris King / DT Swiss Wheelset

This wheelset is for a rider who wanted a rim that we don't usually offer, but which was the perfect choice for his use.  The result is this beautiful 27.5" wheelset built with Chris King ISO-B rear and ISO-AB front hubs laced to DT Swiss EX471 rims.

Industry Nine / Stan's Wheelset

Recently we talked with another rider who was tired of waiting for Chris King's Micro Spline driveshell to arrive, but who wanted a top-quality, fast-engaging, US-made hub, so he asked us if he could get what is essentially the standard Chris King / Stan's Flow MK3 wheelset, but built around Industry Nine's Hydra hubs. We're building the wheels, and we think that will make a fantastic wheelset, so of course we were happy to oblige!

Industry Nine Hydra hubs, Sapim Race spokes, and Stan's Flow MK3 rims are going to make an awesome wheelset.

One of the reasons that you might want something custom is for colors not available in any other wheelset, and Industry Nine hubs have some of the best anodizing in the business, as this deep red attests.  You'll see some options, like the Enve/Industry Nine M-Series wheelsetwe offer, where the hubs and spoke nipples are only available in black, but if you want that wheelset, but built with hubs of a different color, we're happy to build them for you.

Phil Wood / HED Single Wheel

One other recent build that was completely different, was this Phil Wood Pro hub on a HED Belgium C2 rim.  This rider just needed a single super-reliable rear wheel in a configuration that we don't normally offer, so they gave us a call.  We worked out the best combination with him, and built the wheel.

These are just a couple of examples of completely off-the-menu wheelbuilds that we've done recently, but the they're just a couple of the wide range of options that we can do. 

 

What can we build for you?
