The Requirement

This customers hobby is rebuilding classic mountain bikes and is very particular about ensuring that the build is correct. He supplied the rims and the hubs that were appropriate for the bike. Target cost for the build sub £120.

The Solution

The rims and hubs were provided so the choice was simply the spokes, Sapim Race in silver was the obvious choice. The customer also wanted blue nipples so Sapim Polyax 14mm blue were provided. Also getting the orientation of the rim writing and hub writing was very important, having gotten this wrong on a previous build for the same customer and had to rebuild the wheel I made sure that I established the exact orientation prior to lacing. Rims and hubs were both 32 hole and laced 3X.
