The wheels are handbuilt in the shop. I call these BORG22 they are 22mm deep and polished silver. They are my all weather training wheelset for classic looking bikes. The rims are not expensive if they need to be replaced and the hubs, well they love the wet. Bearing life is long in all conditions.
- A robust all weather wheelset.
- Shiney silver.
- Cartridge bearing hubs
- Stiff yet comfortable.
- Double butted Sapim spokes.
- Shimano or Campagnolo freehub.
- 24mm wide tubeless ready wheelset (tubed tyre compatible also).
- Life if the rim warranty.
- Weight from 1670g
- Dynamo option available.
The rim is 24mm wide and 22mm deep. It weighs 450g. The rear rim has offset drilling for increased NDS spoke tension (this is a good thing for spoke life). The internal width of this rim is 19mm and it has a 2mm thick spoke nipple bed. All tyres will sit wider on this rim than they would on a narrower one. This improves rider comfort due to the increased air volume and due to the different tyre shape handling in the bends particularly over broken road surfaces is improved. .
These wheels are robust and the rims are low cost meaning they are perfect training wheels and ideal for wet weather/winter use. They are supplied tubeless ready with tubeless tape, valves and IRC tyre levers. The levers are supplied because they are best levers I have tried and make fitting of every tyre I have tried so far easy.
Spokes and nipples
BORg wheels hubs get Spaim Force spokes but Royce hubs get the Sapim race due to a difference in spoke hole size in the hub flanges. Sapim silver brass nipples are used. A stiff wheelset for nearly all riders weight limit 100kg. Spoke nipple washers are used as well.

BORG Wheels hubs
