MOST RECENT

A week or so ago, #xlr8wheels and our sponsored shredder #littlestrocketeer got a sneak peek at the new Duck Creek MTB Park.

The Park is not yet officially open, but will be as soon as some council permissions are sorted.

It's a blue and black run Enduro style park, with heaps of fat and tall berms, and plenty of air. Only 5 minutes off the Pacific Highway near Ballina, this is your next "must ride". #xlr8wheels #Project321 #seekperfection #noshortcuts #nobullshitwheels #bespoke #unleashyorawesome #xlr8yourride #rideon #bikes #bicycles #cycling #wheelfanatyk #wheelbuilder #carbonwheels #customwheels #whiteindustries #classicnotplastic #nextie #zelvycarbon #newzealand #MTB #australia

Well what can I say about these wheels, I have risen many diffennt types of wheels over the last 30 plus years of cycling build by my self and other builders, these XLR8 wheels built by Josh who I have known for close to 20 years, they are the stiffest, quick off the mark the most easiest to keep at speed, as I have just said I have ridden wheels that are 3-4 times the price of these but don’t feel any better so if you want some really great wheels get in contact with Josh and he will look after you. #xlr8wheels #cognspokebathurst

#Enve SES 3.4 wheel repair for Matt.
Cracks in the near new front rim meant a new rim was needed.
We talked with one of our carbon suppliers about the perfect replacement, to ensure the final finish of the rim is as close as possible to that of the original ENVE.
60% gloss, 40% matte clear over UD and it's virtually impossible to tell the difference.

#Carbonti SL Boost hubs! Sexy. Smart. Tough. Super light and heat value.

Super smart machining make them light and good geometries make for stiff wheels. Lots of different drillings and ano colours if you are looking for something unique.

#xlr8wheels is a #carbonti Top Dealer. If you are looking for absolute light weight, and great reliability, then these are your components. Hubs, chainrings, bolts, axles .... heaps of great stuff to complete your ride.

Ben has a pair of carbon #xlr8wheels that he's been loving, and wanted a rebuild on his unreliable #Bontrager Mustang Elite TLR 29er wheels. Since he bought the bike, they had never stayed straight.
We rebuilt the hubs with some new cones and bearings, and relaced these lightweight asymmetric rims with #Sapim Race spokes and nipples. Being a very light rim, some care is required to get them to a solid tension, without going too far. A fine line, but the outcome is a solid set of XC wheels that will be reliable for years to come.

Money saved, good parts re-used, and less landfill. A win for all.

No matter what gets a rebuild, this is an important start.
Full bearing and freehub grease ensures the cost of the new spokes and build are wisely invested.

The #xlr8wheels quiver includes 14 bikes (at last count, but this is likely an underestimate) but one sees the most frequent use. This 1989 Mongoose IBOC Comp has the "Tomac" geometry (super steep, offered for one year only) and is made of Tange Infinity double butted steel and straight blade rigid forks. 1x7 drivetrain and cantilever brakes.On mildly tech or flow trails, it's a hoot. Picks up the kids from school, and gets us home from the pub (XLR8, not the kids!) really well too.

As #bobthebuilder says, "reduce, reuse, recycle!". We at #xlr8wheels like to see old bikes and parts back on the road. In many cases, quality older parts can be even better quality than some of the new #consumable offerings (where performance and reliability are a distant second to profit margin). Get in contact if you need us to build some new wheels from some hubs you already have, replace a rim or spokes, or just want to get your bike rolling in top condition again.

We get to Play with lots of sexy stuff here at #xlr8wheels, but these #carbonti SL road hubs really take the cake.
Super smart machining make them light and good geometries make for stiff wheels. We really like the all alloy hubshell. Carbon doesn't really save weight, and just adds a potential adhesive fatigue or galvanic corrosion location.

A tough light stiff "all road" tubeless carbon build for Steve. He's a bigger guy, and a pro bike mechanic, so he knows his stuff and is tough on gear.
