"Few incidents that the wheels survived: On the Dempster Highway (Yukon Territory, Canada), while riding in the mud the derailleur and chain were spun into the rear wheel, breaking both. The wheel was still perfectly fine. In Alaska, while riding through a creek (large stones, big bumps) the bearing bolts for the rear rack snapped but the wheels were fine. The biggest test was the GDMBR where often I had to ride over rough roads in the dark and at -25C."
"These wheels are virtually indestructible."
There is nothing more I love seeing than the crazy adventures (that may be an understatement for this his trip...) my wheels can take people on. Thanks so much for the great review Iohan, I will continue to live vicariously through your amazing trip!
Obsession, or passion? Who am I to judge? Either way I simply love building wheels for those who appreciate quality!
