  • Marcus got in touch about getting two sets of wheels, a Sunday best set (details to follow) and a set for his daily commute/training in bad weather. A strong, reliable wheel set that will be inexpensive to maintain so that his nice wheels stay nice!

    Miche Primato hubs are a favourite of mine for this type of application. At £85 or there abouts you get a pair of hubs with sealed cartridge bearings, a serviceable freehub body and a set of skewers! unbelievable. Bearing life is pretty damn good considering the price, plus they are easy to look after.

    Double butted spokes and the Archetype rims finish this build off nicely and you get a strong and durable set of wheels that doesn’t cost the earth.
