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 just wanted to say thank you for the wheel build. I have really enjoyed riding the HED with White industry hubs. You were correct in saying I would not be disappointed. The craftsmanship and customer service are unparalleled. You have gained a customer for life. Next up some wheels for my 29er build. Thank you again, these road wheels ride like butter.
