Matt needed some new wheels for his commuter and wanted a dynamo front hub to power the bike’s lights. Dynamo hubs are perfect for commuters because they make the bike ready to go, all the time. No need to bring battery powered lights, and no need to worry about keeping battery powered lights charged. The SP hubs are some of the lightest and lowest resistance hubs on the market. We paired it with a DT Swiss 350 rear hub with the Campagnolo freehub body. The 350 uses the same exact Star Ratchet freehub internals as the 240S but uses a slightly heavier hubshell and costs significantly less. Pacenti SL23 rims are wide, light, and tubeless ready. These are the murdered-out all back versions, with a 28 spoke front wheel, and 32 spoke rear.
