Hope Bulb 20mm fronts on both bikes; one with Syncros DP-25 rim, one with a Mavic disc specific something or other. 15/16 DB spokes and alloy nips.

Rear #1 is a Chris King ISO disc with a Mavic 717 something or other, 15ga spokes, alloy nips.

Rear #2 is a Hadley disc with a DT EX 5.1, 14/15 DB spokes, alloy nips. Brand new, unridden. Just picked it up yesterday to replace the Hope Bulb rear that I managed to mangle the internals of somehow, in just over a year. Was working beautifully up until the last minute..... Hope is sending me a new hub; selling that to help defray the cost of the Hadley.

Each bike's pair had matching rims to start with, but with both rear wheels needing rebuilds in the last couple months, I just had the builder use what he had handy that was comparable to the original rim in size and weight.
