If you need a great 700c wheel, but you don't want to spend a ton of cash, this is the wheel for you. All Handspun wheels are hand-trued, perfectly dished, stress-relieved and tension checked before they leave the factory. This wheel is built with 36 DT Swiss Champion spokes in a three cross pattern with brass nipples and is built to last
Designed as a touring or commuting wheel, Handspun builds this up with a durable and stylish Shimano Deore LX hub. This hub spins on easily serviceable loose ball bearings and is built to last. Lace this up to Velocity''s Dyad rim and you''ve got a wheel you can count on for years.

As trends change it's fair to hold on to the basic and classic (funny to think of 10spd freehubs as now classic..)
This is the second set of these I've owned over the years. First set lasted long enough to still have marketable resale value. I only passed on those to build up a set of Chris king hubs (also 36, and also dyads). Truth be told, aside from the engagement of c Kings, lx hubs are as simple and amazing as you can get. Too, they're becoming harder to find (e.g. xt non disc, hubs have an alum axle. Whereas LX's run good ol steel. Something to consider...)
Dyads are solid, lace up super well if you out to go it on your own.
Folks at tree fort are super nice, fast turnaround on shipping, and we'll packaged
