Ahh, another post apocalypse set of wheels! What are those wheels moving?
Ill be puting these on my fargo..I may upgrade the frame in the next couple months though...thinking of a custom heavy tourer.
Either way the wheels will be used for loaded off road touring/bikepacking
Centerlock Disc on the front? 6 Bolt disc on the rear?
The centerlock is a good thing for Touring bikes you pack in Boxes to fly places.
because it's easy to pack the disc separately, so It Stays Flat.
Was actually still debating whether I should get the 6 bolt adapter for the shimano..was starting to think i should not bother,cause ill be buying new rotors and cassette anyway, so i can keep mycurrent wheelset as a backup or may e for another build.does it matter?
They will be laced 4 cross btw

For mountain Decents The discs with the aluminum spiders will soak off some heat. and
bigger the better for disc size.. 180F 160R a minimum..
[ i got a bike, built with a adapter on the front, the type which tightens around the splines with a bolt.]
Going to use velo plugs instead of rim tape
Rear wheel is laced, waiting on more nipples for the front.
This beast weighs 3.96 pounds with no cassette or rotor
Kinda scary 2013-03-15 20.40.41.jpg
psy, The price to pay for reliability. Just to make you feel even better, it's .06 lb. more than a bare frame I'm restoring.
It's a beast!
