As you probably know by now, we're all battling longer than normal lead times on many bike products right now. For parts like headsets, BB's and cranks we have upped our inventory so many of these are available from stock.
But for custom wheels things take a little more advance planning, but we think it's worth the wait. This set are built in house by Chris King, with a 12 week lead time right now.
There seems to be a lot of coverage right now on sustainability and environmental issues both inside and outside of the bike industry so it's worth taking a look at how what we sell here at AVT impacts this.
Our neighbor here in Ashland, Mike De Salvo, consistently turns out some of the nicest welded bikes in the business. So when Mike gets asked to produce something for a special event like the Chris King Open House or Grinduro Builders Showcase you know what he comes up with is going to be impressive.
This week's wheel build of the week is another stunning pair of Gold Chris King R45D hubs laced to ENVE Foundation 45 rims.
Made in the same Utah facility as ENVE's top of the line SES rims, these Foundation 45's (and the deeper Foundation 65's) represent one of the best value, USA made rims available sharing much of the same technology asENVE's more expensive rims.
