Was told by Keong that usually custom wheelset cannot compete in terms of pricing to those being churned out of factories due to economy of scale.

Then again, go custom if you really really want specific parts to be on the wheelset that off the shelves can't satisfy one's want?

Keong has a reputation of being one of the few reputable wheel builders so that helps for sure.

topeak has them, try GH or most shops that has topeak stuff.

I was using it on old bike since my seat tube is short, current bike using elite cannibal, easy to side load from any side. for a typical side pull bottle cage if you pull on right side if mounted on down tube, you would have to pull from left side if the same cage is on the seat tube, cant use the same hands.



talking about saddles, I've broken 2 spez saddles at the base lol. cheap romin comp, and sworks power arc. same place at the saddle base beside the cutout. rails are fine, sent the sworks one try luck claim warranty even though it's 2 years old, but since july no news. using pro stealth now, 40g heavier but half the price, hopefully that can last longer lol.

maybe I'm too heavy sad.gif sad.gif

Previously i got one from Decathlon.. RM15 saja.. can be left/right sided..

Anyone tried this tube before? the unthreaded ones.. since no thread then will have no nut to lock it to rim.. will keep rattling or not?

wont rattle, just annoying to pump if your pump isnt the screw in type. push to engage end up hard to engage, push the valve into the rim, if the rim is high profile and valve not long end up cant engage. was using 62.5mm rims and 80mm valve also not much extra clearance

I honestly do not fancy custom built wheels as I have heard of many tales of spokes breaking but it can happen to any wheelsets, even ENVE so I am just not comfortable myself.
It mainly comes down to how well the spoke is tensions when the wheel's built. Went through 3 pairs of custom wheels so far, only one of them had a spoke break, and that's due to it the tension being too high.

I had that problem. I end up go hardware shop find smallest rubber grommet. Slide onto the tip and secure with the nut. No more rattle
