We LOVE it when we get pics back of our customers adventures using our wheels. Adventure touring is just one of the many uses for our customers built wheels. We build what you need, we do not use a cookie cutter approach. The wheel set in the pictures was designed for Michael French. Michael needed a bullet proof wheel set for all types of commuting, touring, including club rides, credit card, loaded self-contained rides and for local to off shore. Michael recently completed the Talimena Skyway ride and sent us the attached pics. Michael said he had fun but challenging ride, The weather was cooler and wetter than Texas summer heat.
Looking for wheels to take you on your next adventure or just a set of wheels that will last you a life time… look no further!
