Big Fella | strong wheels for big riders

If you are 100kg+ or are looking for the strongest wheels around then you have found them. So if you break spokes or are concerned that factory wheels are not up to the job then we have a pair of wheels built to handle the heavier rider. Hand built here in our workshop in Sussex, we use the trusted Miche Primato hub (in either Shimano or Campagnolo), strong alloy DT Swiss RR511 (18mm internal width 32mm deep) rims and Sapim Race black spokes and brass silver plated nipples for a strong yet comfortable, good looking wheelset. You can upgrade to our Deluxe version with DT Swiss 350 and black bladed spokes here.

If you are 100kg+ or are looking for the strongest wheels around then you have found them. We use a high quality rim and hub and lace them 32 hole 3 cross front and rear for maximum strength. These strong wheels are a respectable 1985 grams for a pair. Supplied with quick releases, rim tape fitted and our true for life warranty. We now offer a Deluxe version too!

Rims – the DT Swiss RR511 is a good looking 32mm deep rim at a respectable weight.

    • A high-quality, robust semi-aero road rim with a 18 mm internal width / 22mm outer ideal for wider road or cyclocross tyres.
    • 32 mm deep section boosts aero performance and enhances mud shedding for cyclocross use.
    • Strength Boost Welding Technology creates a perfectly welded join for a durable, reliable rim.
    • Machined sidewalls for powerful braking on a consistent sidewall surface.
    • Wear indicators show the extent of sidewall wear.
    • PHR washers assist the ABS nipples to naturally align perfectly with your chosen spokes, increasing stiffness and durability with no weight penalty over traditional eyeleted rims.
    • Unique process for the black coating produces a tough and durable finish.
    • Outer width: 21.5 mm, Inner Width: 18 mm
    • Height: 32 mm
    • Weight: 533 grams

Hubs – Miche Primato hubs are super reliable, great for budget builds, daily commuters and training wheels. These Italian made hubs are an excellent choice for those wanting easy home maintenance. Supplied with Quick Releases, we fill them with 100% synthetic grease which repels water but still allows them to spin reasonably well. Available in black with 8,9, 10-11 speed freehub for Shimano and Campagnolo groupsets.

Deluxe – if you want to upgrade we offer the “Deluxe” version with DT Swiss 350 road hubs offering quality press fit bearings and are easy to service. 8-9-10-11 spd Shimano or Campagnolo free hubs available.

Spokes + nipples – we use Sapim Race black spokes which are light and strong plus a silver plated brass plated nipple with a plastic insert.
