CX Go Fast Wheels


Just finished these beauties up for a local lady CX racer.  Stan's Alpha 340 ZTR rims laced to American Classic hubs with Sapim Race spokes and alloy nipples.  At 24h radial front, 28h 2x rear these weigh in at 1320 grams for the pair less skewers.  Not too bad considering they have a normal amount of spokes, and the spokes are pretty standard fare.

These look gorgeous, and they spin like crazy.  These should knock well over a pound of wheel weight, and close to one half pound of tube weight off her current set up.  That should easily be noticeable on the race course.

 
Hard to argue with that.

These were a little over $700 plus Mn sales tax.
