Usually, when we build wheels, we're building a set, but there are times when a rider doesn't need a set, so we're happy to build single wheels too.
In this case, the rider had a Priority Bicycles 600 commuter bike for which he had upgraded the front wheel previously, and now he wanted a rear wheel that would match and check some other boxes as well. He liked the idea of a silent hub, and wanted a rim that would match his front one and allow him to shave a lot of rotational weight over the stock rim, so we went with the Boyd CCC rim laced to an Onyx singlespeed mountain hub. The result, which will be used with a gates cog and will make for a super durable, silent bike. We like it!
