Derby helped usher in the wide rim revolution by optimizing their carbon fiber rims for higher volume tire casings. If you're after more grip you will appreciate the stability and handling performance gained when pairing your favorite tires with a wider section rim. A wider rim opens the tire profile transforming it from a "lightbulb" shape to a "square" shape by widening the base of the tire at the bead. This change in profile can dramatically improve traction and stability.
Wheelbuilder Custom: We understand the online selection process can be challenging. Our custom wheel pages were developed with intelligent filters that reduce the seemingly endless number of hub combinations to those that apply to you. Plug in your basic axle, frame and brake requirements within any of our custom wheel pages, and let our smart filters show you the possibilities. We invite you to take a journey exploring the range of hub options available for your next custom build.
Not sure what to choose? Call (626-442-4444) or email us. Our expert sales staff are always happy to discuss component options and make recommendations for optimal performance.
IMPORTANT: Base package includes Derby Carbon MTB rim, DT Swiss 350 hub, black double butted round spokes, Black brass nipples, rim tape, and labor.
- Hub Offerings: Select your Rim, Axle, and Brake type from the drop down menus then allow our smart filters to sort compatible hubs for your application. For more detailed information on any of our MTB hub offerings please visit our MTB Hub Category.
- Spokes: Wheelbuilder caries a wide range of high quality spokes from leading manufacturers. We select the exact spoke model and manufacturer based on a combination of your selected spoke type as well as hub flange thickness and spoke hole diameters. If you have a specific brand preference please leave us a note in the comments field.
