For many riders, an aluminum rim is the best option–whether because of cost considerations–or just because of the way they ride.  Whatever the driver, Praxis' AL32 rims are a pretty sweet option.  With a 32mm inner width, 3mm offset spoke bed, tubeless readiness, and a welded seam all at a very respectable weight, these have what it takes to make a really nice all-around mountain bike rim.

 

 

For this build, the customer went with Phil Wood's excellent MTB Disk hubs to round out an already solid build.  Phil Wood's hubs are built around the company's legendary bearings and are designed to be easy-service and durable without sacrificing the beautiful looks for which they've become known.  These hubs do a great job of blending classic high flanges–complete with cutouts–with modern amenities like thru-axles and XDR drivers for a sweet end-product.  One interesting feature of this wheelset, however, is the mixed axle type layout: the front hub uses a thru-axle, and the rear uses a quick release.  As with any custom wheelset, we'll make sure you get the configuration that you need.

 

 

SPECS:

Whether you want something that's a solid all-rounder for your mountain bike, an aero-blade for your TT bike, or something completely different, we can help you make it happen.  Our experienced wheelbuilder has built them all, and we have take pride in our ability to hear what a rider is looking for, and then make that into an awesome wheelset!

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.
