I always get excited building touring wheels, knowing how far they will take someone and knowing they really will be pushed really excites me. These wheels will be rolling from Europe to SE Asia and will likely spend some time in Africa and possibly Australia or New Zealand as well.

The build is Ambrosio Keba 36h 26" rims laced to a White Industries disc hub on the rear and a SON 28 disc front hub dynamo so he can charge things like a camera or phone battery while on tour, all tied together using DT Alpine spokes. The rims tensioned up really well and should be good for crossing a few continents.
Obsession, or passion? Who am I to judge? Either way I simply love building wheels for those who appreciate quality!
