I got to build a set of wheels for my buddy, Frank, who is getting a frame from Jeremy at Gallus Cycles. The bike is meant for adventure riding, so I decided to go with Pacenti DL31 650b rims. Frank wanted to be able to run lights and power so we used a SON28 dyno hub in centerlock and we decided on the White Industries CLD hub for the rear. I used a mix of Sapim D-Light and Race spokes with Wheelsmith nickle plated brass nipples.
The wheels came together beautifully and will be perfect for reliable go-anywhere riding. This will look great with the 48mm tires intended for the build. I'm really happy to be a part of this project and look forward to seeing the complete bike!
