Jaxon wanted a set of tough-as-nails 26″ wheels for his Nomad. The uber-wide Derby rims were used, with the extra strong DH carbon layup, and were paired with a set of Chris King hubs. The King hubs are a limited edition Sour Apple color, and it looks beautiful! I can only describe the color as “polished Jolly Rancher”. They look delicious, are made in the USA, and will easily outlive Jaxon’s bike. DT Swiss Revolution spokes and brass nipples hold it all together. As of this writing (Nov 13th) the Sour Apple color is still available, but it wont be forever, so act now if you want a set!
