These track wheels utilize the Bicycle Wheel Warehouse Pure Aero 30mm Deep-V, (at 475g ea) rims. These rims are extremely strong, so popping wheelies and jumping curbs will not be a problem. Considering that we are lacing these rims to Formula loose ball bearing fixed/free wheel high flange track hubs, we have created an excellent value in high end single speed wheels. The Pure Aero rim is light weight yet very aerodynamic (approx. 475g), which is great for anyone who knows what it's like to spin and loves the feel of speed.
Both the front and rear track wheels are built using a three cross lace pattern, which offers a great blend between each wheel's ability to accelerate yet still absorb road shock. These wheels come with a 16 tooth cog / lock ring installed on the fixed side, but you can always swap it out with your cog of choice.
In the spirit of high performance, we are building these wheels with light weight, high end, DT Swiss Competition double butted spokes and chrome plated brass nipples. Under the Wheel Set Appearance drop down, if you select the "all black", your wheels will come with black rims, hubs, and black DT Comp spokes, with chrome plated brass nipples. If you select the "black / silver" option, your wheels will come with black rims, silver hubs, and silver DT Comp spokes with chrome plated brass nipples.
Last but not least, you will find 2 pcs of Velox 16mm cloth rim tape in the box. These are super nice wheels, at an incredible price.
