When a customer contacted us about building a sturdy, tubeless ready, singlespeed wheelset to convert his sweet retro de Rosa road bike into a single speed city shredder, there was one build that really stood out: White Industries' ENO eccentric single speed rear hub would make for easy chain-tensioning with vertical dropouts, and a matching T11 front hub would keep things svelte and looking good up front. Astral's Radiant rims have a really classic medium-depth rim profile, and being tubeless-ready gives the option of not having to worry about flats while reducing weight and lowering rolling resistance. Sounds good to us! Sapim CX-Ray spokes are super strong, and lightweight, and for a radially-laced front wheel, they look trick too!
When you want to go fast, Enve's super-deep SES 7.8 are at the top of a very exclusive selection of rims, and this week's Wheel Build of the Week is just about the best configuration we can think of using these gorgeous hoops.

We aim to ship out the majority of orders within 2-5 days of receiving your order. Many orders are assembled-to-order, or ordered on demand from our suppliers so can take a little longer than some other online retailers to ship out (we're a small independent retailer, not Amazon Prime!).
This allows us to offer you a much wider range of colors & specs at all times, but please consider this when ordering.
USPS is our default shipping method so most US domestic orders will take 2-5 days to arrive. For international orders this does take longer (up to 10 days in some cases), please choose an expedited shipping option from UPS or FEDEX when you checkout if you need parts faster than this!
Any questions on specs, colors, technical details please contact us.
