More wheels

You can never have too many wheels, especially when I keep swapping them between the two frames.
DT wheels

Having barely ridden a 26″ wheeled bike for the past 18 months I pulled apart a pair and used the DT240 hubs to build up some new crest rimmed spares. The King wheels with DT supercomps have been superb so I went for the same build. After waiting for over 2 months for AJ’s to get any spokes in I gave up and the front had to have nrmal thicker comp spokes in.

Weights with rim tape and valve come in at 887 g for the rear which is pretty keen, with the front showing the heavier spokes at  831.  1718 for the pair is great for a cheap build to me.

Chucked on the new Ignitors which sealed super quick and easy, general all purpose spares so should leave them on for a while.
