Hand built wheels are one of our specialties here at the shop and here’s another example of what we can do. Let us build your next set of wheels and ride with confidence knowing they were built professionally with years of experience and tons of builds!
ABOUT THE HUB: The Schmidt Dynamo front hub or SON (Schmidt’s Original Nabendynamo) is extremely reliable and has almost no drag. Made by Wilfried Schmidt Maschinenbau in Tübingen, Germany, the hub is quiet and is designed to give at least 50,000 kilometers of trouble free riding between servicings. The hub powers many different six volt headlights including Schmidt’s own Edelux II LED headlight and assorted taillights, both halogen and LED headlamps and taillights made by Busch & Müller in Meinerzhagen, Germany, Supernova lights, and Spanninga lights.
The SON is extremely popular amongst long distance cyclists who need reliable lighting for all night cycling in any weather conditions. Brevet riders would rather have light when they need it, and don’t want to carry batteries for a 1200k event. Bicycle commuters and people who don’t require an automobile depend on the SON to make their cycling safe and efficient all year long in sun, rain and snow. Touring cyclists need light to make it to their next campground on a long day’s trip. I use one on my mountian bike for night rides, and my road bike has one with the light switched “On” all the time.
Many cyclists want to charge a cell phone or GPS while they ride. The SON hubs are ideal for this purpose. We have several AC to DC converters for this purpose.
ABOUT THE RIM: The Grail MK3 rim is designed to let you ride without limits. Whether you’re rolling on fresh asphalt, crushing big gravel miles, or racing cyclocross, the Grail MK3 is ready to outperform the competition. Light, strong, and laterally stiff, the patented shape and 6069 series aluminum construction of the Grail MK3 makes it ideal for longer and more difficult rides both on and off the pavement. Stan’s patented tubeless technology can seal most punctures while you ride, for unmatched durability and peace of mind on every ride. The Grail rim’s versatile BST-R design is compatible with tubeless road tires, low-pressure tubeless converted tires, and conventional tires and tubes. The rim’s patented shape offers a more secure connection and airtight seal with tubeless tires and improves tire stability for superior handling in all conditions.
