Triplet lacing rear wheel

Postby f.jimenez » April 15th, 2016, 7:01 am

Hello

Congratulations on the new carbon wheel range! I can only imagine how much work must have gone in to produce those, and it looks like you've managed a solid product, so well done :)

Regarding lacing on rear wheels (45mm to be specific), see that you are using 2x lacing. I'm assuming this is a symmetric lacing pattern with 12 spokes on each side (on the normal wheel), and lower tension on the NDS.

Is it possible to get the 45mm carbon wheel with triplet lacing, so 8 spokes on the NDS and 16 on the DS?

I have been building my own wheels for a few years now, and much prefer this pattern over the standard symmetric options.

I see in another thread that you are also considering selling rims only, so that would be a possibility as well, but it would be nice to get the Flo hub too ;)

Yes. That is how our wheels are built.

We will not be selling prebuilt rims with this configuration. Sorry about that.

Yes we are working on the rim only option. I'm assuming that will be available in a couple of months.

I hope that helps.

Hi Chris

Yes it helps. I will wait until you offer rims only to build the wheel just how I like it

Cheers
