The Velocity Major Tom Disc brake wheelset is perfect for road and CX race bikes using disc brakes. The rim for tubular tyres only and is 23mm wide and 21mm deep and stiff. Therefore wider tubular tyres are perfect for this rim.
If the tubulars tyre's are opted for with the wheels I will glue them for you and mount them.
The wheels can be built for the Cannondale 6mm offset rear used in one of there CX bikes.
A review here
These are stiff and light wheels for CX racing or general road use. Tubular tyres are quite practical for advise on riding with tubs just ask.
Available with a choice of freehub Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed, campagnolo 9/10/11 speed or SRAM XD 11 speed drivers. Thru axle compatibility is assumed and the wheels will come set up for 100x12mm/142x12mm. 100x15mm is supported with no extra parts. End cap inserts for Q/R front wheel are included but the Q/R rear axle is not included unless you ask me to swap the 142x12mm rear axle for a Q/R axle. If Q/R is opted for you will need to buy the Q/R skewers. The listing is not currently set up for giving all the axle standard combinations as it means more option than the website supports.
Available in 28F/28R spoke count.
Weight of the 28F/28R Major Tom DISC wheelset is 1690g
The Miche Syntium DX hubs have been picked because they have
- bearing pre load adjuster (rear hub),
- 6 bolt rotor fitting,
- they are thru axle compatible,
- SRAM XD driver compatible,
- 17mm alloy axle
- Shimano or Campagnolo 9/10/11 speed compatible
- the reliable because they are simple.
The hubs are Miche Syntium DX They use SKF 6803 bearings and a 17mm alloy axle. The rear hub has bearing preload adjustment. The front hub is convertible between Q/R 100x15mm/100x12mm standards and everything is supplied for that. The rear hub is supplied with a 142x12mm axle or Q/R, the axle conversion kit is available here. I will assume 142x12mm unless you tell me otherwise. If you want the a Q/R I will happily swap it over for you and provide Q/R skewers. The hubs have 6 bolt rotor fitting.
The spoke and nipples are the last trick. Black Sapim Force triple butted 2.0/1.8/2.2mm (at the elbow where it matters) give long service life. The elbow being 2.2mm in diameter has 21% more cross sectional area than a sapim race or DT Swiss Competition spoke. This means 28 spoke wheels have the spoke life of a 32 spoke wheel. What is not to like about that? The nipples uses black Sapim alloy self locking nipples. The nipples can be easily turned with a spoke key but won't vibrate loose by themselves. Sapim alloy nipples don't break used thousands now and never had one break yet- so don't worry.
