I just completed my new wheelset! Surly hubs, Sun Rhyno Lite rims, and DT Swiss straight-gauge spokes laced 3x. Should last until the apocalypse


I had forgotten how much fun it is to build wheels!

Nice build!

Good wheelset. Same as I use on the Surly. Three years now and NO truing needed, in spite of my two hundred and forty pound mass.

My fixie has Surly fixie hub and Salsa Semi rim, another nice choice, IMO.

Awesome build. I built very similar wheels except my spokes were silver and used a Shimano XT Disc front hub. Other than that it was all the same. I haven't had to true those things in.......well.....ever. And that is saying a lot meaning that those are only about the 3rd set of wheels I have ever built, and I am NOT a good wheelbuilder. I'm learning though. You'll love them!
