Boyd 60mm Carbon Tubular Retro-Modern Wheelset: High Flange Dura Ace 1st Gen Hubset - 24H x 126mm - C-Xray - Sugar Wheel Works (NEW)
This bizarre and gorgeous wheelset blends classic road bike high flange stylings of 1st gen Dura Ace hubs with peak modern technology in Boyd 60mm carbon rims. Are you building a vintage frame with modern race parts? These eclectic wheels may be for you! They were handbuilt with all new/NOS parts by Jude Kirsten Gerace of Sugar Wheel Works in Portland, and have never been ridden.
Thanks to my bengal, Spekter for the ridiculous image!
