Wheel building


Perfect job for a cold winters day, I'm building a custom set of 26 inch wheels for a Surly Long Haul Trucker touring bike using Velocity Aeroheat rims made in the USA , Mac spokes and Shimano Deore LX hubs

Much the same as my new rims on the Montague. Velocity Aeroheats,Shimano XT MTB hubs and 36 Sapim spokes. Nice solid wheel. Back in Japan in a bit over two weeks with them on.Mine were built in USA by Prowheel Builder ex. Las Vegas now east coast.
Just had my old rims re-hubbed and laced at Craftworx , Brisbane Australia, the shop owner was the head wheel builder for Velocity when they were an Aussie company.

Hi llewellyn , Yeah I like Velocity rims as well as they are really nice rims to build with and perfect for custom wheel building, your wheel set sounds very nice and should last you for years . I hope you have a good trip back to Japan.

Cheers Don
