are available and are interchangeable.

The freehub has 6 independently spring loaded pawls with 54 points of engagment. It is advisable to re-grease the freehub mechanism with good grease like Rock n Roll Super Web to keep the hub quiet and to stop water ingress weakening the spring. 

Bitex hubs use 6902 bearings in the main shell and have a 15mm alloy axle. A sensible design.

Spokes used are Pillar wing 20.

Cx-ray black spokes and black alloy nipples are an option for light wheels and the 28 spoke count option.

Sapm Force round spokes and brass nipples are a cheaper option and the one offered for the 32 spoke count option.  A spoke prep that acts as a corrosion inhibitor is used to prevent corrosion. This also stops the wheels going out if true as it has a mild thread locking effect. 

Sapim nipples washers are used also.

The wheels are supplied tubeless ready (valves, tape and IRC tubeless tyre levers). Wheels pictured are not supplied with tyres or disc rotors but these are available. 

Lighter builds are only possible with lighter hubs
