Custom Wheels 2019 Edition

We like to build with different rims and hubs when new products are available. The latest is a wheel set I just finished that uses the Boyd Altamont Lite rims and Bitex hubs. 

I built this set up pictured below with a 20H front rim using DT Revolution spokes, alloy nipples and radial lacing - the 24H rear uses DT Revolutions spokes on the non-drive side with alloy nipples laced 2 cross, and on the drive side DT Competition DB 14g spokes also laced 2 cross but with the change to go with more durable brass nipples.
This is probably going to be one of my replacement rims of choice since the Stans NoTubes Alpha 340 Rims are no longer being made - this set weighs around 1400g.
