My first attempt at a clyde wheelset


Well, after reading another thread on here a few weeks back I decided to have a go at building my own set of clyde wheels. I had most of the parts at the time was just waiting on the spokes and was going to take them in to a shop to build up. But, doing it myself covered the cost of the tools.

Not sure I am ready to risk my life on them yet though

Mavic A719 rims, DT Swiss Alpine III spokes and Alfine internal hub and dynamo.

Nice they look legit. I feel you though on risking your life on them, or even worse break your bike.
