If you ride singlespeed daily you will love our Backstreet HERO wheels. We wanted a pair of wheels which are good value, comfy, versatile and robust. We have put together the popular DT Swiss r460 rim, Alpina F1 bladed black spokes, silver plated brass nipples and Miche Track hubs for a durable value for money hand built wheelset.
Rims – the DT Swiss R460 is a versatile tubeless ready all around road rim and a Strada favourite. At 460 grams, the R460 is quickly proving to be light but not sacrificing strength, stiffness and stability. The increasingly popular 23mm wide profile mimics a tubular tyre, where the advantage can be felt immediately while taking corners as the tyre is no longer shaped as a light bulb but like an upside down U. The rim can set up tubeless with a kit supplied by us from DT Swiss. This high quality good value DT Swiss rim is available in 32 hole with a black finish. We can remove the decals if required for a stealthier low key look. We seal the inside of the rim with a high-performance anti-corrosion wax to reduce the risk of corrosion damage in bad riding conditions typical of the British winter.
Hubs – the Miche Primato are excellent large flange track fixed / free hubs at a great price. They look good too. Built with Alpina F1 black bladed spokes + silver plated brass nipple. Fitted with rim tape and a true for life warranty. Rear OLD = 120mm.
