Bill was looking for a stiffer and more durable set of great rolling wheels for his Trek.  The Shimano Ultegra hubs will keep things spinning smooth for years.  They use trickle down technology from the much more pricey Dura Ace hubs, like the grease sleeve and indexed bearing pre-load adjustment.  The H Plus Son Archetype rims are wide, stiff, and exceptionally well made – the joint is straight up invisible.  The graphics are pretty sweet too.  32 spokes up front, laced two-cross, and 36 spokes on the rear laced 3-cross.  Alloy nipples everywhere except the rear DS, where brass was used instead.
