Handbuilt Wheels

Here at CycleLab all our mechanics are damn fine wheelbuilders and are on hand to discuss your requirements to make sure you get the right build to suit you & your riding style. Here’s a few parts to whet your appetite:

Rims

(WHITE BACK)ACHETYPE(AT-25) 700C MAT BLACK-2

H+Sons Archetype – from £55 each

Available in Silver, Black (shown) & hard anodised Grey these rims are super strong and light. Built with a ‘new school’ wider width to create a great tyre shape for improved cornering grip and improved rolling resistance. This is THE rim of the moment (and a staff favourite). Why spend a fortune on carbon rims when these guys cost around a £100 for a pair and are more durable & predictive in poor weather!

H+Sons TB14 – from £55 each

Available in Silver, Black & hard anodised Grey (shown) these rims are super strong and light. Modeled from vintage Mavic rims with the small metal name tag which rebalances the rim. Also featuring the ‘new school’ wider width they are perfect for a retro rebuild. The strong classic box section is combined with double eyelets to produce a seriously bombproof wheel. If Sean Kelly was building a new set of wheels ready for the Spring Classics he’d choose these guys!

Mavic Open Pro – from £45 each

Available in Silver, Black (shown) & hard anodised CD grey these rims are super strong and light. A classic rim for road or ‘cross with a traditional narrow profile… A modern classic.128124

Mavic Reflex – from £45 each

Available in Silver & hard anodised CD grey (shown) these tubular rims have graced many pro peloton bikes. A strong, lightweight yet sensibly priced rim which is at home on the track, road or covered in mud for ‘cross with a traditional narrow profile… Another Mavic classic.

Hubsr45_hubset_shim_black

Chris King – from £200 front / £415 rear

Yes those prices are right but these are hubs for life… Built in the USA, Chris King famously even make their own bearings so they can guarantee every single part meets their exacting standards! Loads of variants for different uses and more colours than a double rainbow, if you’ve got the dollars look no further.

240s_Non_Disc_Black_5_100-(1)240s_MTB_Black_QR_5_135

DT Swiss 240 – from £140 front / £280 rear

A firm staff favourite. Built in Switzerland these super durable hubs are light enough for road yet bombproof enough to grace any DH bike… They’re not cheap and they might not come in loads of colours like Chris Kings but they are a true fit and forget product and available in loads of variations for all your bikes.
350_IS_Black_QR_5_100350_IS_Black_QR_5_135

DT Swiss 350 – from £50 front / £140 rear

Want 240’s but haven’t won the lottery just yet? The 350’s are for you! A slimmed down range and built in Taiwan to strict Swiss standards you get 240 tech for half the price. Comparable reliability to 240’s but with a slight weight penalty you may be left wondering why anyone would get 240’s!

hope_rs_mono_front_main-587x692hope_rs_mono_rear_main-587x692Hope – from £65 front / £155 rear

Made in the UK in glorious Barnoldswick, these super reliable and easily serviced hubs are another fit & forget workhorse product. Loads of variants & colours and of course lots of other matching parts to ‘pimp’ your ride from seat clamps to stems & brakes. Hubs (and more) for patriots!
