Our “Disc on a Budget” build is a great choice for you. we have chosen the best value for money parts you can get for this build. Fast, durable these wheels are ready for you take out and explore or ride with you friends.
You don’t have to spend thousands to notice the difference to your riding. With miche hubs and H+Son Hydra rims these wheels can liven up any ride. Get the miles in and still with all the benefits of having your wheels lovingly hand built.
Miche hubs are great at this price point in the uk. With sealed cartage bearings they are up for any weather. Less maintenance means more time for you to ride. This also decrease the rolling resistance. These hubs are perfectly at home on the road or gravel.
Available for both campag and shimano. These hubs are reasonable light for the price but with low drag you will notice how smoothly they come up to speed
We have gone with 24 holes front and 24 rear in j bend. This gives you a noticeably lighter wheelset. You still have plenty of strength in the front wheel to absorb impacts and the rear wheel is plenty stiff, so you don’t waste any energy
H+Son hydra rims are a perfect all-round rim for disc brakes. With 23mm internal they let you run wide tyres. This improves your comfort on the rough roads or cobbles. These are reasonably light rims at 440g per rim. This keeps the mass down so that they spin up to speed very easily.
Tubeless ready. They are both strong and light. The ideal combination for any ridding
We use sapim race spokes for this build. Race spokes are an ideal in this build for their durability whilst still keeping the weight down. Laced 2x front and 2x rear.
