We built Darren a pair of fixie wheels using Velocity Aerohead silver rims and Phil Wood fixed hubs (some of the nicest hubs I have ever seen) and I was really pleased to receive the following email and photos from him this weekend.
“Jon, I’ve finally had some time to fettle on my bike and am delighted to attach a couple of photos to show you how my fixie project turned out. The Velocity rims have proved to be a nice rim, but the highlight of the whole set up is definitely the Phil Wood hubs. These wheels just spin and spin. Although this is a bit different to the normal super light deep rim carbon jobs you do, the advice you gave throughout was fantastic and I’m now the proud owner of a stainless steel fixie with custom wheels. Thanks again and when funds allow I’ll be back in touch to get some custom wheels on my carbon road bike. Hope all is well and wish you and your business the best, please pass on my thanks to Darren the wheelbuilder. Darren”
