This wheelset is based around the light weight Zenith double sided fixed or Fixed/free hubs. One spoke count 24F/28R is offered although higher can be done too.
The freewheel pictured is not included in the sale.
The rim is 450g 24mm wide 22mm deep and supplied tubeless read. This is the perfect rim for this wheelset. Tyre fitting is fairly easy for tubed tyres and tubeless tyres are securley retained which means no reseating at the side of the road in case of a flat.
The wheelset is a stiff and reliable for all weather use including track racing.
Tubeless ready means stans rim tape, BORG 44mm tubeless valves and IRC tyre levers (i.e you are thinking about fitting tubeless tyres). Normal clinchers and tubes can be usedas well.
Spokes used are sapim race front and rear with alloy nipples. A spoke prep is used to allow the wheels to be trued at a later date not that should ever be needed. The alloy nipples dont fail as I build them properly. Corrosion is not an issue. Failures are a non issue with my wheels.
The wheels are laced radial front and 2x rear. The pictures are of a lower spoke count set but these will be updated.
Silver means, silver rims, hubs, nipples and spokes. Black means, black hubs, nipples, spokes and black rims.
The single sided hubs use a asymmetric rim and the double sided hub use a symmetric rim. That way even tension balance is preserved.
Zenith track have large flanges and use big reliable cartridge bearings and hollow steel axles.
Wheelset weight is 1840g
Lower spoke counts are possible for a lighter wheel. There are no reliability issues with a lower spoke count.

Due to the disruption in postal service, misdeliveries, customs issues and long delays all overseas shipping is now with UPS/Parcelfocre shipping, weight and destination affect price. So the following applies.
UPS is apply a £5 surcharge to all parcel picked up from 1st November to 1st January. This cost is passed onto you.
E.U countries that I ship to regularly.
Parcel Force shipping is used for a number of European countries. The price is the same for up 25kg. There is not a small parcel rate with Parcel Force. If your country is one of those then checkout is simple.Just checkout and pay. Parcel force offer a road freight service to most of Europe and it takes 2 to 5 days depending on the destination. UPS is also available on request.
Other E.U nations/outside EU customers a will see UPS rates.
However if the rate maybe wrong and the UPS rates assume a small E2 jiffy bag suitable for many small items. This if course does not apply for bigger items or multiples purchases. Quotes are available. Simply registering the website with you address e.t.c and I will provide full quote.
Therefore contact the shop for a shipping quote. Your registered shipping address will used for the UPS quote.
VAT will be removed as well and a new invoice issued. If payment has already been made a refund for excess payment will be issued.
For outside E.U customers the following applies. The order value is with VAT. VAT is 20% so order total for the parts/6 = VAT amount.
Then add the UPS shipping amount. The true amount may differ. the VAT is used if you have under paid if more is due then we will let you know. If you have over paid I will work out what and refund you.
