Rider: Matt S.
Location: Hendersonville, NC
Hubs: PowerTap G3
Rims: Pacenti SL23
Spokes: DT Competition & Sapim CX-Ray
Matt picked up a used PowerTap hub for a song and needed it laced up and road ready. We used the excellent Pacenti SL23 rim, which is wide, tubeless ready, stiff, and has an excellent brake track. The hub is 24H, and I would rather have put Matt on a 28 spoke wheel, so to add a little stiffness we used the beefier DT Swiss Competition spokes on the drive-side and lighter, bladed, Sapim CX-Ray’s on the NDS. Alloy nipples keep weight down, and nipple washers were used to help reinforce the rim since the spoke count is a bit low.
