Great Job. Ordered a Velocity Chukker 40 spoke and Velocity Rear Disc Hub with Sapin Strong Spokes for my 29er. Rode the bike fully loaded with food and water, Racks and my 120kg body from Perth to Sydney (4,700km). My major concern was that I had popped spokes previously on a 26 inch 36 spoke wheel when riding Cairns to Sydney and was worried about extra forces that would come into play with 29 inch. This wheel was bulletproof and attracted the attention of other touring cyclists on route. Good job team, thank you. Can't wait to find an excuse to buy another set. If you are a big bloke and to tour or trek with lots of gear, start your build with a set of wheels that will go the distance. One happy camper! Carl Johnston Australia

I am a heavier rider and had Pro Wheelbuilder build out 650b wheel set. I followed their recommendations on spoke choice for my 32 spoke rims. I ride on very rough roads and off road. The wheel set came very true and looks awesome. With a lot of miles on them they are still true. They are holding up very well and I plan to have Pro build me a 700c wheel set this winter. Very pleased.
