DT Swiss / ARC Wheelset
Nothing inspires confidence on the trail like a custom wheelset hand-built with meticulous attention to detail. Our experienced wheel builder will start them for you as soon as conceivable, and we will be able to ship them, frequently, in 7-14 days.
I am an experienced bike mechanic since 1995. If you have questions, special requests or interests, or want help with your build, please feel free to contact me. I can do my best to assist you.

We will contact you after an order is placed for the build specifics, or send a note if you know what you wish to have. Choose one item per category plus spoke / nipple color.
Hubs – Select in drop down menu
The 240s hubshells are machined in Switzerland and they contain hollow star ratchets and upgraded stainless steel bearings over the 350 model – 60 grams lighter par pair
If you have 6-bolt rotors and you wish to have to keep them but like the centerlock idea, we will be able to include a pair of centerlock to 6-bolt adapters for $30 and invoice you later.
* standard build, average weight for complete wheelset with 6-bolt disc, 350 hubs, 32 / 32 Sapim Race spokes & brass nipples
– subtract 70 grams with centerlock disc hubs
– subtract 60 grams with 240s hubs
– subtract 80 grams with Laser spokes
or subtract 100 grams with CX-Ray spokes
– subtract 44 grams with alloy nipples
both easily convertible – no tools required
Front hub axle
QR / 15 x 100 easily convertible with specific end caps
Rear hub axle
QR / 12 x 142 easily convertible with specific end caps
Sapim Race spokes are a perfect blend of strength to weight – Great all around choice
Sapim Laser’s are butted thinner in the middle – 80 grams lighter than Race spokes – Great for lighter riders, racers or when used with stiff rims
Sapim CX-Rays are aero bladed, butted spokes that are somewhat stonger than Laser spokes and 100 grams lighter than Race spokes. They build up better because the spoke can easily be held in place to eliminate winding. Great for lighter riders, racers or when used with stiff rims
Brass – Strong and long lasting, brass spoke nipples will withstand water, salt and mud and are easy to true after years of service.
Alloy – Save 44 grams per wheelset but don’t seem to be as resiliant or durable as brass. On the other hand, we use the best alloy nipple available. Sapim Polyax 7075-T6, heat treated for extra strength with a special coating for corrosion resistance and low friction at the spoke interface.
