Jeremie was looking for a stronger and more reliable rear wheel.  He had problems in the past with both hub reliability and poor build quality leading to loose spokes, and he needs a new rear wheel nearly every season!  The Chris King rear hub is aruably the most reliable hub made – with a little maintenance once or twice a year they’ll last forever.  King products routinely outlive several different bikes.  The Nox AM29 carbon rim is strong, wide, and reasonably light.  The asymmetric spoke bed helps to balance the spoke tension on each side of the wheel by raising the tension on the lower tension side of the wheel (the non-driveside on a rear wheel).  This is the last rear wheel Jeremie will need for many years to come!
