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.
