This set of wheels is headed to Jim in Anderson, SC.  He’s a bigger guy who likes to hammer, and in the past he’s been put on several very nice custom wheels that just weren’t well suited to him.  Rims that are too light, not stiff enough, not enough spokes, etc.  But not so with this build!  White Industries T11 hubs are some of my favorites, they’re made in the USA, great bearings, beautiful fit and finish, and a durable titanium freehub body.  The Nox Composites Falkor 36R rims are brand new and replace the S36R rims.  The Falkors have an updated more aerodynamic shape and an improved brake track.  They have a 21mm inner width, they’re tubeless ready, and the 36mm depth means they’re more aero than a traditional alloy rim but they won’t get blown around by crosswinds and they’re still really light – only 420g each.  A 24/28 spoke count combined with the stiff carbon rims is the right balance of weight, stiffness, and durability for Jim.  The set weighed in just below 1450g.
