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!

We've said it before, but why not just say it again: after decades of black wheels taking the top spot on the podium of desirability, it's just really cool to see more silver options that blend modern technology with classic looks.  This wheelset blends classic looks with modern amenities.
