“Exellent Wheel Builds Cycles.”

Written on: 15/03/2013 by Bedonia (1 review written)

Ten years ago I Took a pair of hope hubs to Cycle Basket to have them build me wheels for my Mountain bike. The hubs were green hope 36 hole Ti hubs. They were built onto Mavic Rims, with silver double butted spokes, and brass nipples (Not Alloy). The charge for the build was very resonable, and I was a Happy chappy with my new wheel set. So this is testament to how good those wheels were, when built by [name removed] of Cycle Basket.
In 10 years of Riding with them on hard tail bikes I never had to true them up, or readjust them even though they had been through this - - -
17 days in the Atlas Mountains Morocco
3 years of use in the mountains of Italy
3 Seasons of mtb racing
North wales to South Wales off road and via the trail centers.
1 month in the Alps at Chamonix
14 days in Bavarian Alps
14 days in Sierra Navada Spain
1 week in the Scottish Highlands
4 years of MTB guiding in the UK and Italy.
And general weekend riding around Wales the rest of the time.
The only maintainance was changing the wheel bearings.
The wheels had been on 6 different bikes of mine in this time.
So after 10 years of use last Saturday on the way home from a 40mile MTB ride the back wheel rim split through sheer lack of exhaustion. What an absolutley brilliant set of hand made wheels.
