James from the Chilterns wanted a pair of fast training wheels, so we opted for Tune Mig Mag hubs and Archetype rims. The finished build looked amazing with the electric blue hubs against the black of the spokes and rims contrasting effectively. Here are a few photos of the build and James’s review:
“I ordered the archetype wheels with 25mm Continental Gatorskins and Tune hubs as I wanted a pair of (great looking) ally winter training wheels what would also double up as climbing wheels as I live in the Chilterns where hills are not in short supply. They are very comfortable in this set up which I expected with the wider rim but I was also amazed at how light they where even with the heavier tyres.
They also seem to hang onto speed well for such a shallow rim. I normally run 46mm carbon rims but actually managed a few flat personal records on them which was a surprise for a training wheel. I liked them so much I’ve ordered a Powertap G3C rear version too!”
