Wheel Tips

This section provides some general guidelines for selecting custom wheel components. Understanding the benefits and trade-offs of the various components can help you wade through the seemingly endless combinations of rims, hubs, spokes, nipples, and lace patterns. Our general guidelines are based on experience, manufacturer recommendations and some common sense. Keep in mind these guidelines are not meant to be rigid rules of selection, they are intended to help you understand the function of the various components and how they interact with one another.
  1. Rim Selection
  2. Hub Selection
  3. Spoke Selection
  4. Radial Truing
  5. Lateral Truing
