Surly Marge Lite and Salsa Hubs

Surly Marge Lite rims with Salsa Hubs built by Melody Wheels in North Fremantle

Thanks to Adrian at Melody Wheels in North Fremantle the slow but progressing build of my Salsa Mukluk fatbike (bikepacking build) has taken another step.  I picked up a pair of Surly Marge Lite rims locally for a very nice price of $50.00 and my hubs, a Salsa Fat Conversion 150 front hub and a Salsa Mukluk 2 rear hub came with my Salsa Mukluk 2 frameset from Bike24.com.  As I needed the wheels built up, I turned to Adrian at Melody Wheels. Adrian specialises in wheel-building and it shows in the quality of the build.  Adrian built the wheels up with Sapim Leader 14G spokes custom cut to 263mm.

There is something neat about a custom build 🙂

The next big question is what colour rim strips? Oh and do I try a ghetto tubeless setup? Well the rim strips will be black and yep I am doing a tubeless setup.
