Wheels built today for a Surly long haul trucker.
Shimano XT hubs, front dynamo hub, Mavic xm 719 rims, DT Swiss Alpine 3 spokes, brass prolock nipples, 36 hole.
These should provide many years of trouble free service on the loaded bike.
Happy and safe riding over the summer break!

We’ve been flat out over the first few months of the year and haven’t yet posted anything up. Just to keep things active, and because we finally bought a shop camera, here’s a photo of the new Exposure Revo dynamo light. 4 LED, should be plenty bright. Stand-light (for traffic lights or whenever else the wheels stop turning) of up to an hour, apparently. Removable plug at the light end makes it a practical choice for bikes that get locked up in public places.
More posts soon, hopefully!
