    Some wheel builds stand far above the rest. Not just in hoops and spokes but in the craftsmanship that goes into every turn of the truing key. Enter these Affinity Phil Wood builds pro tuned by none other than Deluxe Cycles in NYC. This isn’t your daddy’s wheelset…

    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!

    The friends at Revolights shot me some of their City wheels to toss on one of my bikes for a little run through the ringer. Going to toss these on my State basket bike for those bike parties and fun nights out cruisin’ around. More once I get these set up!

    Not only are the Favor Bikes wheels in this Spun flick super dialed but there’s some solid riding after the one minute mark. Some good motivation for the ride home from work.

    Chances are if youre buying a set of Victoire hubs youre planning on building them up proper. Now you can save some time and have a set of H+Son, Velocity or carbon clincher hoops laced up professionally and dropped at your door. Built up these things look pretty beast.

    Looks like the dudes at Eighthinch just got in a shipment of their super affordable Amelias. Best part? New colors. Check em and swoop em for you next budget build or to get an old conversion going for a friend. Just over 100 bones for wheels, tires, cog and lockring is a bout as good as it gets. Swoop here.

    There’s a couple days left to get your photo in for a chance to win a new handbuilt wheel set from Eighthinch. All you have to do is upload a photo of your hammered wheels to their Facebook and you might be rolling on some new Buellers or Julians.

    I love taco bell. When Noah sent this over to  me yesterday I was stoked ha. The dudes are running a little contest that could land you a new set of wheels handbuilt by them! You’ve got the rest of the of the month to drop  a photo of your garbage wheels on the Eighthinch Facebook page for a chance to win some Julians or Buellers. I’ve ridden them both to the ground and can tell you that you won’t be disappointed.

    This is probably the best wheel build video I’ve seen! The long tedious task of prepping a wheel with tunes from Starfucker. So good! I couldn’t imagine actually doing all this the way it was done. Spoiled with spoke calculators and cutter/threading tools.

    I feel like videos like this get lost on bike blogs more often than not. Nothing really crazy to see. No tricks. Nothing too informative. Yet someone took the time to make this. Personally I like it and think it’s interesting. So in light of that…what this nice track wheel get built to some mellow tunes :).
