Curated: Collection of our most popular options
Our website offers a wide array of options. For wheelsets, choose your favourite hub brand and model, pick your colours, nipples, and spoke type. Many of our rims from the Global location have options available within the curated collection, while our warehouses will stock the most popular finishes. There may be a default graphic, but coloured options are available.
The bike industry likes to advertise “Custom” or “Custom Made”. This typically means the product is somewhat unique, but there are no actual options available to choose from. Others offer a custom service, which is predominantly an exercise in choosing from various colour options. Seems a bit lackluster doesn’t it?
With Light Bicycle you can get a Full Custom service which goes well beyond choosing your hole count and graphics. The level of customization varies per rim type, but in general, we offer these customizable features:
- Fibre type (external layer)
- Hole count, unique spacing, drilling angles, offset
- Drain holes
- Eliminate spoke access holes, tubeless without tape
- Internal nipple drilling
- Schrader instead of presta valve
- Rim finish
- Tubular, hookless, clincher bead
- Some rims can have their internal width changed
- Ride characteristics - Choose from different pre-approved layup designs
While some brands are able to offer customizable rims, Light Bicycle has a distinct advantage. With direct control over the workshop from Engineering to Quality Control, we produce carbon products at a more affordable price. No Minimum Order Quantity.
