Dylan’s Alchemy/Stan’s NoTubes 340 wheelset

Dylan carrying two sacks of potatoes is still lighter than the average cyclist. He wanted an über light climbing wheelset that would match his climbing prowess.  At just 1265 grams for the set, these clearly did the job as just a few days after he picked them up, he won the Mt. Doug Hill-climb.

The front wheel features a black Alchemy ELF front hub, laced with 24 black Sapim CX-Ray spokes to a Stan’s NoTubes ZTR 340 Alpha 355 gram clincher rim with Sapim black alloy nipples.

The rear wheel is made up of a black Alchemy ORC 28 hole hub, laced with Sapim CX-Ray spokes 3 cross drive-side with black Sapim brass SILS nipples, 1X non-drive using alloy nipples to a 355 gram Stan’s NoTubes ZTR 340 Alpha clincher rim.

Jeff’s custom Alchemy / Stan’s NoTubes ZTR 340 wheelset – 1260g

Jeff wanted an über light climbing wheelset for his 2010 Madone 6.9.  His current wheelset is the excellent Bontrager Aeolus 5.0 carbon clinchers. These are great all-rounders, but not super light by today’s standards. He originally was thinking Bontrager XXX-Lite clinchers, but they are quite expensive. For about half the price, Jeff went with this wheelset.

At an honest 1260 grams, these are 60+ grams lighter than a set of Bontrager XXX-Lite clinchers.

This wheelset should dip the weight of Jeff’s Madone to around 14 lbs.
