more custom handbuilt wheels…

Here are a couple of wheels that I recently built up for a couple of customers.

The first is a Sturmey-Archer internal three speed coaster brake hub laced up to an Alex DM24 rim with DT Champion spokes.

The second is a White Industries ENO single-speed hub laced up to an Alex Adventurer rim with Wheelsmith double-butted spokes.

The ENO hub is eccentric! This allows pretty much any frame with vertical dropouts to be able to be run as a single-speed or fixed gear very easily. The axle mounting points are 7.5mm off center. This provides 15mm of fore & aft adjustment to tension the chain properly. Providing the transmission of power is a White Industries single-speed freewheel. It is stainless steel & super fancy. The whole setup  is pretty slick!
