*when buying let me know freehub required and axle standard needed* I know better photos are needed.
The HED Belgium+ disc brake rim is one of the roundest and flatest disc brake rims about and given the price it better be. It is also wide with an internal width of 20.5mm. It is based on the rim brake version with a anodised non machined sidewall. It looks spot on and is a robust stiff rim.
I build these like all other disc brake wheels I build in 28 spoke form but 32 spoke is possible.
Sapim CX-ray spokes are used but round Sapim Force are available and it saves money. The spokes are black and black sapim alloy self locking nipples are used.
Hub choice is limited to the best. There is no point messing around with hubs that dont quite meet the mark.
BORG DX - 5 bearings in the rear hub, a 17mm alloy axle and Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed, Campagnolo 9/10/11 or SRAM XD 11/12 speed compatible freehubs are available. The BORG DX use specially made SKF bearings for the best performance in adverse condtions.
Please choose from Q/R 100/135mm,. 100x12mm, 100x15mm or 142x12mm axle standards. Add a note at checkout to let me know which one you need. Other standards like 100x9mm, 135x10mm and 135x12mm are available but DT Swiss hubs need to be used.

I highly recommend fitting IRC Formula RBCC, Formula Pro Light or Formula PRo Fusion X-Guard tubeless tyres in 25mm or 28mm as these are the best tyres you can buy. For those requiring a of road tyre there are the IRC Serrac CX tyres. For those require a wide road/gravel tyre there is the Schwable Marathon Supreme tubeless tyre in 35mm or 40mm width. All available from the webshop and fitting is free.
