Select Number of Front Spokes - 24 or 28

Details

High spoke counts (having a lot of spokes) and 3X lacing increase the robustness and durability but come with a weight penalty (heavier). Low spoke counts (having less spokes) and 2X lacing decreases the robustness and durability but come with a weight advantage (less weight). You can run a lower spoke count on carbon rims because of the stiffness/strength of carbon. If you need some help or advice, feel free to call or email us. We'll make recommendations based on your unique needs. 1-800-688-8600 or support@coloradocyclist.com.
Select SP Spokes, Front Wheel

Details

Estimated weight each: 5.97g (264mm length)

This 2.0 / 1.8 / 2.0mm (14/15/14 gauge) double butted spoke is one of the most versatile in the DT Swiss spoke range. DT Competition gets its special strength from cold forging. This makes it not only extremely durable but thanks to the thinner middle section, it is lighter than a spoke with a constant diameter.

Description

Your DT Swiss 350 Straight Pull disc custom front wheel with DT Swiss R500 Disc rim is proudly handbuilt in Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA.
Every wheel we turn out is built completely by hand to your specifications. All wheels are tensioned, stress-relieved, then re-tensioned before final truing. We have been building custom wheels since 1977 and take great pride in building the finest wheels available.

These rims can be used with standard tires and tubes, or tubeless tires. (For tubeless ready, please order tubeless tape and valves.) Never exceed your tire's recommended tire pressure.

Please Note:

  • Our wheels are built with a 2-cross or 3-cross lacing pattern (3-cross recommended.)
  • If you intend to use tubeless tires, make sure to select tubeless tape (from the rim tape pull-down menu) and to purchase tubeless valves (available in optional items at the bottom of your build.) Further, select tires from the "Tubeless Ready" tire selection.
  • If you choose to select optional items they will be installed on your wheels (with the exception of the sealant) unless otherwise specified. The sealant is not added because it can leak during shipping. If you are picking up your wheels at our retail location, we can add the sealant for you.
  • Manufacturer warranties are honored for the parts included in your build.
  • Custom wheels typically ship from our shop between 1-3 weeks after you've placed your order depending on how busy our shop is. However, if a part is not immediately available - from us or from our vendors - your build may take longer. We do our best to keep you updated on the situation, and are always happy to provide updates if you reach out. The easiest way to contact us for updates is to send us an email to support@coloradocyclist.com and we will respond as quickly as we can.
Nipple Information
Alloy nipples are much lighter than brass nipples (approximately 20g per wheel) and are recommended for light weight builds. Brass nipples are stronger and less expensive. We've been successfully building wheels with both for many years.

Spoke Information
Colorado Cyclist primarily uses DT Swiss stainless spokes in our builds. This has been our choice for wheel building since the late 1970's and we certainly owe part of our wheel building success to the strength and longevity that DT Swiss spokes offer. We also use the very popular, lightweight and bladed Sapim CX-Ray spokes and have had excellent success with them. Spoke weight, as well as a spoke Performance Chart, are provided in the pull-downs that you'll use to pick your spokes. The Perfomance Chart should be used as a guide to compare the various spokes. However, there are so many variables involved in building a wheel properly (ie. rider weight, terrain, intended use, price, etc.), you may end up with questions. If you need some help or advice, feel free to call or email us. We'll make recommendations based on your unique needs. 800-688-8600 or support@coloradocyclist.com.
