As of late, I've been building some centerlock wheels. I have no real compelling reason to use centerlock vs standard 6 bolt as it seems that when viewed as a system, weights are equivalent (system meaning hub and rotor weight). The one advantage I have found is for travel, and only if you remove your rotors to bag or box your bike. Removing centerlock rotors is a 30 second endeavor vs a few minutes for 6 bolt rotors. Plus the convienence of handling one lock ring opposed to 6 little bolts. But I digress.
As cyclocross season approaches I'm faced with the challenge of having a quiver of 3 sets of disc wheels, 2 six bolt and 1 centerlock, all align with the brake caliper when changing wheel sets. With 6 bolt there are rotor shim spacing solutions currently available on the market. Unfortunately, I'm unable to find a rotor shim set available for centerlock. Soooo.... I'm making one! The set will fit a standard 35mm centerlock hub, not the oversized 46mm. They are stainless and .0075" thick ( about .02mm for the metric inclined). If you need a set, let me know as I'm willing to make extras!
So I promised myself that if I put a Blog page on my site, I'd use it... Well, since my last update was almost 2 years ago I obviously failed in that!
Quickly, here's what I've been up to: I have been dabbling with building carbon, fixing carbon and soon will offer it as a product! Painting: Yup, brought that in house! Want something wild and funky, drop me a line and we will create it! Powdercoating... Yeah, that too! The industrial oven arrived with the advent of carbon fabrication!
Wheels, Wheels, Wheels!!! Yes, I'm now offering wheels as a product. Send me parts or spec out what you'd like and I'll build them up perfect and ship them off to you!
David is either found riding his bike or in his workshop working on them!
