Description

The Wabi CX/Urban 700C Single Speed wheel set features heavy duty anodized black rims with eyeleted spoke holes. With a combined weight of 1920g these hand built wheels have final tensioning, lateral and vertical truing and pre-stressing done here at Wabi Cycles in Colorado.

Wheels include rim strips, and the rear hub is a flip-flop design, meaning it has fixed threading on both sides. This allows the use of a fixed cog or freewheel on either or both sides of the hub.

Specs
  • Lightweight - 1920g/set (940g front, 980g rear)
  • Silky smooth sealed bearing hubs
  • Bolt on design with a hollow axle is lighter than solid threaded axles and doesn't damage dropouts. This also makes the wheels quick release compatible. 
  • 14/15 double butted stainless spokes with brass nipples, 32 front and rear
  • Hand finished truing and pre-stressing
  • Threading on both sides allows flip flop options
  • 100mm front, 120mm rear
  • 18.5mm ID Rim Width
  • Recommended tire widths: 28mm to 45mm
Notes

IMPORTANT: These wheels require rear dropouts that are at least 5mm thick. If they are less than 5mm (or just at 5mm), you'll need a chain tensioner to ensure the proper clamp. See our installation page for more info.

Installation

See our installation page for guidance, including torque recommendations. Replacement wheel bearings also available.

Smooth as heck and with looks to match

I’ve not given them a proper battering quite yet, but from my first rides I feel they’re a sturdy set of wheels. The spoke tensions feel good and even. The black rim is a nice little touch. Overall I’m enjoying them.
