When building a wheelset for our Clydesdale riders, every aspect of the wheel has been thought through. From selecting the proper rim for application and tire width, to the type of hub that provides these riders with the strength and durability they expect from a handbuilt Velocity wheel.  The final piece we consider when building the wheel is spoke count – for this we have developed a simple guide for selecting the proper wheelset.

After factoring in a riders weight and gear, we suggest for individuals between 200 lbs to 229 lbs we recommend a front and rear spoke count of 32 each; for individuals between 230 lbs and 259 lbs, a front and rear spoke count of 36 each; for individuals between 260 lbs and 300 lbs we recommend a front spoke count of 36 and a rear spoke count of 40.   These serve as simple guides for what wheelset will be best serve you, please do not hesitate to contact us with questions you might have with your wheelset, we are happy to help!
