[nggallery id=2]This week Stewart from Glasgow will (deep snow permitting) receive his Velocity A23 wheelset to go on his new Storck. He opted for Velocity A23 rims, black Sapim CX Ray spokes and Goldtec Road hubs. He requested 1 cross on the front, 2 cross on the rear and brass nipples for added durability. Stewart loves climbing so we kept the weight down and the stiffness up to give him a pair of wheels perfect to match the rougher hill roads of Scotland. The wider rim will keep the road buzz down to a minimum on longer rides. We think the Goldtec hubs look great in their new high polish finish. These are a great alternative to the HED Ardennes range with the benefits of having them handbuilt to your own specification and physique, they come with Strada’s own titanium quick releases and are significantly cheaper! The front weight is 656g, the rear 885g, total 1541g + rim tape + QRs. Keep riding (and climbing) Stewart.
