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 Revolution 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 with more durable brass nipples.
This is probably going to be my replacement rim of choice since the Stan's NoTubes Alpha 340 rims are no longer being made - this wheel set weighs 1454g.
