Wheels are now turning and we need to know what to put between the rims and the pavement? Looking at tire choice today, clincher only please for this build. The fork will accept up to 25c, maybe a 28 if the 28 is on the small side. Don’t recommend anything smaller than a 23c. What tires would you recommend?
Now regarding wheels. Here are the results. We will be building wheels for this bike. There is a 1st choice and a 2nd choice. Final choice will depend on availability. Remember, we are building this bike and showcasing it the week after Eurobike.
First choice: King hubs with Mavic Open Pro rims. Why did we pick Mavic rims? Right now, it’s based on tire fit.
Second choice: If we can’t source the King hubs that we want, we will build our wheels with DT 240s with DT rims.
Now, let us know what tires you’d recommend?

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.
