Wheel building


I am in the mountain bike wheel building business. See below for current builds. Please contact me for inquiries. How to order wheels

(Pricing includes shipping to lower 48 US states only)
  • Rims: Surly My Other Brother Darryl (Symmetrical).
  • Hubs: Rear, Bitex FB 190 (QR) Front, FB 150 15mm through axle.
  • Nipples: Sapim Polyax blue.

Notes:

Custom rim strips in variety of colors
Choice of nipple color from black, blue, emerald, gold, red, lime, orange, purple, silver. Or brass.

Why do I build so often with Bitex hubs? It's simple. It may be the best bang for your buck hub out there! I run all my personal bikes with Bitex hubs for the relatively high engagement, price and most importantly, reliability. I personally have had no hub failures with routine maintenance. That said I can build with your choice of hub with the corresponding price adjustment.
