Usually, when we build wheels, we're building a set, but there are times when a rider doesn't need a set, so we're happy to build single wheels too.

 

In this case, the rider had a Priority Bicycles 600 commuter bike for which he had upgraded the front wheel previously, and now he wanted a rear wheel that would match and check some other boxes as well.  He liked the idea of a silent hub, and wanted a rim that would match his front one and allow him to shave a lot of rotational weight over the stock rim, so we went with the Boyd CCC rim laced to an Onyx singlespeed mountain hub.  The result, which will be used with a gates cog and will make for a super durable, silent bike.  We like it!

This week's wheel build of the week is another super versatile gravel set up that's equally at home on road or CX.

Astral's Wanderlust Carbon rim is originally designed as a lightweight adventure / gravel rim capable of running up to 2.5" tires. But given their rim profile (23mm internal, 29mm external) they can perform double (or triple) duty as a pure road rim or cyclo-cross race wheelset.
