Banks is a friend and local rider, and is one of those guys who is almost always up for trying something.  Riding through rocky creek bed with vertical banks on each side instead of using the bridge? Sure.  Going over that 2ft log that is right on top of a drop? BRING IT.  For his wheels I set up with something reliable and stiff and strong.  The Hope hubs have fast engagement, convertible axles, and are super durable.  We used the optional stainless steel freehub body for even more durability.  The rims are WTB’s Frequency i25, which are wide and strong and will stand up to his aggressive riding style.  For a cleaner look we stripped the factory decals, and the red hubs and nipples will look great on his Trek.  Enjoy the wheels Banks!
