Now is the time to convert your fatbike to 29+! Dropping a few lbs of rotating weight and throwing on faster rolling tires will make your fatbike feel like a rocket ship!
Gorgeous set of Hope Fatsno hubs laced to Velocity USA Duallys out the door today!
I am starting to wonder how long until I pass the 1,000 carbon fat wheel mark! Sweet set of Nextie 65mm rims laced to I9 hubs out the door today! I have a few more pretty exciting projects in the very near future too!
This was a really fun build for a very cool bike! These will be going on a Calfee carbon fiber fat tandem for Will Muecke from Team CoreCo. Thanks again for letting me be a part of this amazing project!
Velocity's Made in the USA Dually 29+ rims tied to Borealis hubs with red white and blue spoke nipples for a friend of mine who is retired Navy. I always love fun builds like this!
**Update 4/25/14** David Reid has completed his trip through the Arctic and you can get a lot more details here An Arctic First
This was a fun project, building a set of wheels heading to the Arctic Circle for a pretty epic adventure. Not sure how much detail I can go into so I will just leave it at, this will actually live up to the word epic, despite how over used it is. I will update with more details once I know if it is OK.
The build is pretty much our standard build at Borealis except instead of aluminum nipples I used brass. It was Turnagain FR-80 rims, Borealis hubs, double butted Wheelsmith spokes. Even though it is a standard build, it should be more than up to the task, our Turnagain rims have been super solid as are Wheelsmith spokes and our hubs worked well all the way to the South Pole so I have lots of confidence in their ability to handle this trip.
Obsession, or passion? Who am I to judge? Either way I simply love building wheels for those who appreciate quality!
