Scott was looking for some burly AM tough wheels for his Jekyll.  With a Lefty fork his front hub options are limited, but I like the Project 321 hubs the best.  They are made in the USA, come in lots of colors, and are both lighter and lower cost than most other options.  The Hope rear hub has 40 points of engagement to help with technical climbs, and it’s easily serviced when needed.  The Derby rims have a massive 32mm inner width and are super strong and stiff, and reasonably light as well.  The sour apple nipples and rim decals will look great on his Cannondale!
