Tubular Cyclocross wheels | Disc alloy QR or Thru

Improve your traction and results with a pair of tubular wheels this season.  The Major Tom is the cyclocross rim from Velocity. Tubular. Wide. Fast. Our wheel build brings together everything you have been looking for in your next cyclocross wheelset. Shimano and XD drives, QR or Thru axle end caps available. Good value and in stock ready to race. 1725g a pair, hand built by Strada here in Sussex. Price shown is for a pair.


Rim – the Major Tom from Velocity is a tubular cyclocross wheelset and is popular choice on the race circuit. The Major Tom rim is 23mm wide which allows for better traction by running low tyre pressure and providing a larger contact surface for gluing and adds strength without additional weight (470g). The Major Tom is disc specific with all black finish. Decals can be easily removed with a hairdryer.

Hubs – Novatec D771 and D772 4-Way fit 6 bolt hubs are Shimano / SRAM 10 or 11 speed ready (spacer supplied) and XD, both work well in this build. Tough and easy to service with cartridge bearings and at a good weight too. We can also supply Hope RS4 centre lock or DT Swiss 350 / 240s range (centrelock) custom order.

Spokes + Nipples – we build them 28 hole , 2 cross front and rear (for riders up to 80-85Kg). Please contact us to discuss a 32 spoke build if you require a little extra strength. We use black bladed Italian made spokes for reduced weight and strength where needed, and an alloy nipple in black.

Weight – 1725g a pair with Novatec 6 bolt hubs + bladed spokes + alloy nipples.

Tubulars – we can supply (and fit) Challenge and FMB tubulars.

Note: if you want the cyclocross clincher wheelset check out the Crest Mk3 Cyclocross Wheels.
