The beauty of a custom wheelset is that it's really a blank canvas with 100's of potential combinations of rim, hub & spoke to suite every imaginable type of wheel or rider.
This set is a prime example of something that we don't see every day in our wheel building workshop, but is perfectly suited to a very specific type of bike and riding style.
A mid-fat, ISO 6-Bolt set up using the Velocity Dually rim paired with White Industries XMR Boost hubs. The end result is a 100% made-in-USA wheelset designed for a very specific purpose in a high quality, strong and great looking package. Shop this wheelset here.

Here at AVT we have customers all around the world but occasionally we run into some much closer to home like Jordan who lives just down the road from us in Talent, Oregon.
After he bought a few parts from AVT we spotted his new bike being built up in a local bike shop and just had to shoot it for a Bling Build blog post as it's a pretty special and one off unique build with a strong Oregon / NorCal flavor!
These Industry Nine Torch hubs in purple are paired to Whisky Parts No 9 GVL Gravel) Rim with Sapim CX Ray spokes and brass nipples. The result is a great looking, lightweight, fast gravel wheel set up at a price that's tough to beat.
