John used to race XC and now he just rides fast for the sake of riding fast, without worrying about a podium.  His Cannondale came with a heavy set of wheels on an otherwise very light bike, so they needed an upgrade.  We used I9 hubs for their instant engagement, with a Lefty front hub, and paired them with Nox Skyline and Teocalli carbon rims.  We used a lighter 32-hole Skyline rim on the rear to keep a lively feel at the pedals, and a 28-hole Teocalli up front which is wider for better tire support for more “stick” in the corners.
