By now most of us have seen a good number of Santa Cruz Reserve wheelsets. They always look great because the rims just look so good, but they they also tend to be pretty uniform: black hubs, black spokes, etc. Now we've got nothing against some wheels that are going to look like they mean business on any bike on any occasion, but we also love a bike that isn't afraid to make a statement!
This is latest Wheel Build of the Week, built with pink White Industries CLD hubs on one of the last sets of Santa Cruz Reserve 25 rims we'll be able to get for a while is definitely one that will stand out–but in a very classy way.
Our neighbor here in Ashland, Mike De Salvo, consistently turns out some of the nicest welded bikes in the business. So when Mike gets asked to produce something for a special event like the Chris King Open House or Grinduro Builders Showcase you know what he comes up with is going to be impressive.
This week's wheel build of the week is another stunning pair of Gold Chris King R45D hubs laced to ENVE Foundation 45 rims.
Made in the same Utah facility as ENVE's top of the line SES rims, these Foundation 45's (and the deeper Foundation 65's) represent one of the best value, USA made rims available sharing much of the same technology asENVE's more expensive rims.
