The Requirement

This customer wanted a hand built robust disc aero style wheel. Having consulted with H Plus Son they said that their Formation face rim can be used to create an aero aluminium wheelset. The customer was keen to pop in for a visit to take a look at the rim and also review hub options. 

The Solution

His initial hub thoughts were Chris King R45, however after looking at the the American Classic disc hubs and feeling the action of their unique freehub ratchet action his mind was changed. The wheels were made up 32 hole 3 cross lacing using Sapim D Light spokes in black with black brass nipples creating a sleek aero style look but not breaking the bank, the budget for these wheels about £550.
