All our wheels are hand built by craftmen with many hours and years of wheel-building experience and knowledge. None of our wheels are machined built, as it is almost impossible to do so with the components that we specify as the tolerances are very small. Spoke tensions for our wheels are 100kg/f Front, 135kg/f Rear drive side.
Important: Despite having serviced many wheelsets, not all bicycle shops and mechanics are experienced in the handling of low spoke count wheels. These are different to traditional and high spoke count wheels, and as such, only mechanics with the relevant experience should handle such repairs.
All our rims are rated to a maximum of 125psi. This will ensure that tires do not go beyond their maximum pressure during increased temperature while braking and during hotter days. Although our tubular rims are tested to beyond 160psi, it does not mean that we recommend such high pressures as we do believe that ride quality suffers at such a high pressure.
Rim Tape for Clincher Rims
All our aluminium rims require rimtapes or rimplugs. These are not supplied with the wheels but are sold separately . Please specify these during the buying process. We do not recommend heavy cotton/ cloth rimtapes as they increase the inner diameter of the rims and make the mounting of tyres very difficult.
