PEK: Very stiff wheels and hold speed really well! Only felt the weight penalty starting from a stand still at traffic junctions and climbing up NTU Hill. Quite stable too with varying wind conditions, though some twitches when there were back gusts from heavy vehicles passing by. Very comfortable too with the 28mm tyres (actual measure width close to 30mm).

Mathias 2020/07/20

Hi, Can I get a quote for a R65 front wheel, 20 spokes, and R88 rear wheel, 24 spokes with DT Swiss 350 hubs or with Bitex (BX301F / BX301R) hubs, drilled holes, no valve stems, no rim tape? Thanks a lot!


LightBicycle 2020/07/21

Hi Mathias, I need to confirm some details before we jump into placing the order. 1. What caliper do you use? The widest area of the R65 700C rim brake is 28.03mm, And it's 30mm for R88. So I want to make sure that the max rim width fits your bike. 2. Here's the hub list for all the hubs we can get, the most used Bitex hubs are RAF10/RAR9. Thanks, Lightbicycle
