  • This is Peter’s second set of wheels from me – this time destined for an Argonaut Spacebike. The brief was simple: “I want the best set of wheels for the Haute Route Alps”.

    Initially we played with the idea of DT Swiss 240 hubs but then I reminded Peter I had a set of Limited Editon turqouise R45’s on the shelf. Style then threw Budget off the top of the Bonnette and I got building.

    The HED Ardennes+ rims are really well made, very wide and super strong. They are the most expensive aluminium rims I offer but I think if you’re after the very best rim then this is the one.
