Any recommendations, not to break the bank!
Or ask Spa, reckon they'd be knowledgeable on such matters and build them for you
Alex Adventurer or H Plus Son Archetype perhaps?
The former being on my Surly DT and the latter on my Spa Cycles Elan built by Spa with a dyno hub.
Neither will break the bank.
He made my 700 disc wheels. And very happy I am with them too.
Hmm, thanks all. Was hoping for something "off the shelf" but maybe they don't exist.
Why do you want off the shelf for heavy duty use?
You're definitely right. I like the idea of not choosing every single component though. I'm weighing up overdue repairs on my tourer versus a new bike.
You don't have to, just tell spa what you want and what your budget is and let them sort it
Not the most original suggestion maybe but I'd go for Sputniks from Spa.
I got some handbuilt from rose and been happy with them.
About 2500 miles and still running nicely. They arent light or nice looking or anything though. Thing theyre rose own brand rims (airline?) on deore hubs, only cost about £100 a pair so very cheap.
yes I know a fair few folk who buy Rose wheels and just get them checked or stress-relieved after a few months.
I don't think they do Sputniks though.
(as you can maybe guess I like them - more rim metal )
