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!
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.
