Proper spoke length matters. We strive to gain full thread engagement on every spoke so that no matter what nipple we use, the strength won’t be compromised. Each spoke is individually inspected for uniformity and the threads are coated with a locking compound.
Hand lacing wheels not only lets us accommodate a wide variety of lacing patterns but also gives us another chance to inspect all the parts of the build as well.
Tensioning, Truing and Dishing
Every spoke is checked for even tension using a DT Swiss Tensio 2, because maintaining uniform spoke tension allows us to maximize wheel strength and deliver wheels that stay true for trouble-free miles.
Once the wheel is round, true, and has even spoke tension, it is double checked by another builder.
Break in Period
We take great care to make sure that your wheels don’t unwind and de-stress after the first couple of rides. This means making sure that the spoke heads are fully seated in the hub and every single spoke has even tension. We pre-stress the wheels as much as we can because we know that the streets and trails are much harsher than we are.
