Ron approached us last week looking for a new wheelset for his recently acquired Ti Mukluk. We had the red set of limited edition powder coated Surly Rolling Darryl rims in stock. Working with those as the start of the project we set about getting them laced up. Black Salsa Mukluk hubs were chosen for their great value for the dollar. The color scheme was chosen to highlight the rim color as the focus of the bike. It should compliment the subtle graphics of the Ti frame really well.
As this wheelset is going to be used for light trail/mtb use and Ron is a smooth rider we went with ultra light DT Swiss Revolution butted spokes connected to black brass nipples. The bright stainless color plays very well with the black nipples and black rim strips against the bright red rims. I really like the look of these.
These wheels have a classic car, hot rod look to them. They should pair really well with Ron's existing parts. I am really looking forward to seeing the finished project.
Have a great day folks.
