If you keep up with the crew at The Heavy Pedal you’ve probably noticed them making some big moves as of late. Already slated to release their much anticipated Axiom now you can lighten things up a bit with these proper carbon clinchers. These bad boys will roll out the box laced up to some smooth Gran Compe hubs and some proper branding. More once I get my grubby hands on these and in the meantime be sure to check them on IG to keep up on the daily!
For some reason I’m kind of a sucker for older Araya rims. They just look like some old school quality that a lot of time and effort was put time into. These Super Aeros were reissued and it looks like Chari has some!
These are what I’m rolling on right now and I love them! Haven’t had the slightest issue with them and they feel beastly. Here’s the Eighthinch press release below. You can snag the wheelset or just the hoops!
“It’s been a long wait for some of you but our Bueller wheelsets and rims are finally in stock. The rims are double walled and 32mm wide making them perfect for use with a wider tire. We have them available as 26″ and 700c both with 36h drilling and eyelets. A few of our riders have been testing these and they hold up great for freestyle and bike polo. These wheels can handle almost anything you throw at them.
The rims are laced to 36h sealed bearing hubs with 10mm female axles. A 14mm rear axle conversion kit will be included with each wheelset to give you all the pieces you need to mount them in a 14mm dropout. Unfortunately the 14mm conversion kits did not make it in on this order but we are having them rushed in. If you order a set now they will come set up for 10mm dropouts but we will send you the 14mm axle kit free of charge as soon as they arrive. The rims sell for $39.50 each and the wheelsets are $224.50 on Cycling Closeouts. Expect for single hubs to be available once the axle kits arrive. Here is a rundown on the specs:
Size – 26″ or 700c
Drilling – 36h w/eyelets
Width – 32mm
Depth – 24.5mm
Weight – 26in/800g 700c/900g
