I just shipped you a pair Rheicel!

Yours did have CX-Rays and White Industries hubs .... similar beasties though.

Josh,

You built me some awesome wheels with WI hubs and archetype rims.

I'm fat and seem to hit a lot of pot hokes so you built them 2x at the front and 3x at the back.

Would these suffer the punishment if I pit them on my 2nd bike?

Hi Rob,

At your weight, these are probably a bit light for that kind of punishment. The Archetype, HED C2 or Rouler has a bit more mass in the rim, so will be stiffer and more reliable.

I weigh 82kgs and found these to be just fine. I admit that I am a "finesse" rider and tend to ride "light" on my equipment, but I do ride on some of the worst roads in the country!

I'd say this build is good for a rider up to about 85kgs. Above that they should be okay, but will not be greatly stiff.

Thanks Defy, but I would like to hold out for a bit more. These are priced at cost at the moment.

Your interest is registered though, and I'll keep it in mind if that's okay with you?

I will supply these with a new freehub that suits either:

1) 9/10/11s Campagnolo, or
2) 8/9/10s Shimano

If you want to run 11s Shimano on these, just use the Campag freehub and a Campag 11s cassette - spacing is the same, works perfectly.
