Chukker...its whats for dinner
At Wheel Fast we had a weekend warrior break or crack (including a QBP built salsa delgado) three rear wheels. The solution was simple....a hand-built wheelset. Matt and I looked at the options and found a wider (25 mm) and heavier version of the Velocity Deep V called the Chukker. This thing was BEEFY....and we built it up 4 cross. This was a very stout rear wheel and we will see how it handles over the next few months. Hand-built is the only way to ride!
