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!
