Merry Christmas everyone! These are a Christmas gift for my dad.  He rides a few times a week to get out and get some excercise, and I figured he deserved better than the stock wheels on his Allez.  He has a 10spd drivetrain now, but I used a new 11spd compatible 105 hub to make sure the wheels are future proof.  The Archetype rims are an exceptionally well made rim, and are anodized after machining for a stealth bomber all-black look (the black will wear off the brake track eventually however).  36 spokes were used on the rear for lots of strength, and a more traditional 32 were used on the front.
