This is Joseph’s second set of wheels from me.  He’s building up a new bike and is using a rigid fork, so we wanted some wide rims to run big phat tires to keep things smooth.  The ASYM rims from WTB are a fairly new offering, I wrote about them a while back, and I like them a lot.  We use the i29 for the rear and the wider i35 up front.  The rear hub is new, the front hub is one Joseph had used previously but it was still in great shape, so I converted the axle to work with his new fork and laced it up.  The black and silver color scheme looks great!
