2. We are getting new stock of rims and hubs ready for cyclocross. And at Ben's, you can select your own choice of hubs and rims, and we'll build them for free. It's usually cheaper to have us build a set of wheels for you than buying pre-built wheels. And then you have exactly the wheels you want.
|White Industries CX-11 hubs|
|Aileron clincher rim|
For example, Velocity just came out with the Aileron, a wider clincher rim designed for cyclocross. And Shimano and White both have cyclocross-specific hubs available.
If a hub or rim doesn't show up in inventory, call us and we'll get it ordered!
3. We're getting our cyclocross tires in stock, both clincher and tubular. We have tires from Clement, Challenge, Vittoria, Stans, Kenda, and other manufacturers.
The hot tire this year seems to be the Challenge Chicane, a set of which are being glued to a Milwaukee Bicycle Company Race Team member today. The Chicane is a file tread, which allows the tire to go faster in dry and grassy conditions, but it has the side tread from the Challenge Limus, the mud tire. That fat tread on the side allows for tighter, more confident cornering.
