The wheels are handbuilt in Suffolk.


  • A robust all weather wheelset.
  • Big cartridge bearing hubs
  • Stiff yet comfortable.
  • Triple butted Sapim spokes.
  • Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed, SRAM AXS 12 speed or Campagnolo 9/10/11/12 speed freehub
  • 24mm wide tubeless tyre ready rims (can also be used with tubes)
  • Hand built in Suffolk
  • Life of the rim warranty
  • Weight from 1646g

These are called the BORG22 because they are 22mm deep. They are an all weather training wheelset with dependable Miche hubs. Bearing life is long in all conditions. 

The rim is 24mm wide and 22mm deep. It weighs 450g. The rear rim has offset drilling for increased NDS spoke tension (which is a good thing for spoke life). The internal width of this rim is 19mm and it has a 2mm thick spoke nipple bed. All tyres will sit wider on this rim than they would on a narrower one. This improves rider comfort due to the increased air volume and the different tyre shape handling in the bends.

These wheels are robust and the rims are low cost meaning they are perfect training wheels and ideal for wet weather/winter use. They are supplied tubeless ready with tubeless tape, valves. Tubed tyres can be fitted. Even Schwalbe Marathons fit with ease.

Spokes and nipples

24F/28R Black Sapim Laser spokes front  and Black Sapim force rear. Sapim black self locking alloy nipples are used. A stiff wheelset for nearly all riders.

Hubs - 100/130mm OLD

Miche Primato hubs are used. They have proven themselves and give many thousands of miles of trouble free all weather use. The bearings are 2x 6001 C3 in both the front and rear hub shells. The rear freehub has 2x 6901 bearings. The axles front and rear are 12mm diameter and made of steel. The front and rear hub are a free axle design making disassembly really simple. Both the front and rear hub have a bearing preload adjuster which should be set once the wheels are installed in the bike. 

Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed freehub, SRAM XDR/AXS 12 speed and Campagnolo 9/10/11/12 speed freehub.

Simply reliable wheels that benefit from life of the rim guarantee against going out of true/spoke failure, rim cracking and hub flange cracking.
