Jeffrey wanted a set of reasonable weight, wide, stiff, simple looking set of disc brake road wheels. The White Industries CLD hubs are arguably best in class when considering all the factors like flange geometry, weight, price, bearings, and freehub mechanism reliability and smoothness. They’re also made in the USA. The Pacenti SL25 rims are a new offering from Pacenti and are an evolution of their popular SL23 rim brake rims. The SL25 is disc specific, a touch wider with a 20mm inner width, and it’s still tubeless ready of course. We used bladed Sapim CX-Ray spokes to help cheat the wind, and the stock Pacenti graphics were removed and replaced by subtle “Built By Southern Wheelworks” decals in red for a cleaner look. Enjoy the wheels Jeffrey!
