Clydesdale wheelset, hand built.
Ultegra 6500 hubset was NIB, 8/9/10 freehub, of course.
DT Swiss 13g straight-gauge spokes, 32h per wheel.
DT Swiss R585 rims.
Everything about this wheelset is strong, super strong. The deeper rims allow the beefy spokes to be tensioned and keep their true.
32 of those spokes will hold about anything. Ultegra is not much heavier than DA, but much more durable.
These wheels are not for the petite amongst us. They weigh 2300g with QR skewers and rim strips.
But you won't break 'em! 150 miles on them.
Now that I'm down from 202lbs to 165, I want something more dainty.
Or something that fits in the palm of my hand.....(no dirty jokes, please).
Friends don't let friends drink and wrench.
