I bought the red TUNE/Alex rd400 wheels from Bikemessenger. Very nice, the set came in at 1268 grams....front was 566 rear 702. I already had a AC sprint wheelset that weighed 1300 grams on the nose...front 545 rear 755. So I am going to use the TUNE rear and the AC front....makes for a 1247 gram clincher set! Not bad for a everyday clincher wheelset!!


Congrats!
I know I was pretty impressed when Bikemessenger told me what he could build weight wise.
He is building me a set now. DT hubs Alex R370 rims cx-rays spokes.
I can hardly wait to see them ;)


Here is your rims on the scale.

Nice wheel Pat.

Alienator, I agree with Divve on this one. The hubs overall are very nice. But you do have to plan on what you will do with them when the monsoon hits. Maybe don't use them in July or Aug, or don't ride in the afternoon.

I've been using the rear 160hub on my daily commuter for a couple of years, and still haven't had any problems with it.

Though I would probably stay away from the carbon axel, just because parts for that are very hard to get in the states.

well, just got back from a tough 84 miles! I am spent...wow! The wheel is great, spins forever and no side to side "play" at all. Feels pretty stiff, I am only 154 lbs. LOVE them!!! Thanks Bikemessenger. The red hub is so pretty, my buddies all want a set now..............

Well, Adrien is based in France (I think) so it could be cheaper (EU and all that crap). But you're right it's a difficult decision, except that bit about the tubs...! :wink:

Poshbikes use Harry Rowland and I've had no probs with them but he doesn't really like Tune hubs so I think it will be Adrien or our hosts. Tubs though will sadly not be dugast silks :lol: But will probably those begining with T as I have them on my summer whels and they have served me well :)

bikemesenger builds great wheels! customer service is excellent, as he is a ww himself. i own a pair of his wheels, although they are for everyday riding.

I'm sure they can :) I like the idea of trying alloy rimmed tubs before I move up to some CF ones, no prizes for guessing which make :lol:
