I recently built these up for Iohan Gueorguiev, he plans on riding the Dalton Hwy in Alaska, the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route, and then continue south from there! It should be a pretty amazing adventure that will really put some stress on wheels. For his trip I set him up with XT/Rhyno Lite for the rear and a Supernova hub dynamo and Rhyno Lite combo for the front so he can charge his toys on his trip. They are all tied together with DT Alpine III spokes and should make for a very solid and reasonably priced set of wheels.
You can follow his adventures here! BikeWanderer
Obsession, or passion? Who am I to judge? Either way I simply love building wheels for those who appreciate quality!
