Steve has a set of SWW wheels for his Roubaix, and he liked them so much he wanted another pair for his Tarmac.  We did the same build as last time – White Industries T11 hubs (in red this time) and DT Swiss rims and spokes. The RR440 rim is a great mid width rim, it strikes a nice balance of weight and width and stiffness, and the rear is available in an asymmetric version with offset spoke holes which raises the spoke tension on the non-driveside of the wheel.  DT Competition spokes, 28 up front and 32 on the rear, and a mix of brass and alloy nipples round out the build.
