For the Big Fella Deluxe wheelset we use the DT Swiss 350 road hubs. These offer quality press fit bearings that are easy to service. The DT 350 is available in Shimano/Sram or Campagnolo, 8-9-10-11 speed free hub configurations.

The DT Swiss 350 road hub is perfect for the rider looking for a high performance hub at a competitive price point. The DT Swiss 350 line offers the same manufacturing quality and design features found in its higher end counterpart, the DT Swiss 240s. The main difference between the hub lines stems from the fact that the 240s has been machine optimised for weight savings and the 350 has not.

DT’s 350 hubs have earned their legendary reputation for quality and performance. There are multiple features that make this product a winner. The Ratchet System® driver mechanism is extremely durable, reliable. It can be serviced without special tools in minutes, thanks to its simple press fit assembly.

The 350’s press fit assembly,   allows the hub to work in almost any currently existing axle configuration, therefore, making them compatible with almost every bike. The contact free seals and high precision build guarantee smooth bearings; every bit of the rider’s energy is transformed into forward momentum. These features and the super lightweight design of all the hub parts highlights the racing legacy of this classic hub.


Two high precision star ratchets ensure quick and safe engagements and are ultra reliable. The press fit assembly allows for quick and easy servicing.


On all DT Swiss Ratchet System® hubs the rotor body is exchangeable without tools.

Spokes + nipples

We use black bladed spokes which are light and strong plus a silver plated brass plated nipple with a plastic insert.


We recommend Swissstop BXP pads for improved performance and reduced rim wear.
