We offer a wide range of "off-the-shelf" hand-built wheels. We generally always have stock of the road and touring/disc road wheels built up and ready to take away on the day.
For our SeaBass prebuilt wheels we choose Kinlin rims, Bitex hubs and Sapim Race spokes. Kinlin offer a wide range of very competitive rim options with the same features as much more expensive brands. The majority of the rims are tubeless compatible, under 500g, and have a very long-lasting braking surface. Most of the disc rims are offset, which helps to achieve a more even spoke tension and therefore a much stronger wheel.
Bitex hubs are also very competitive in terms of pricing and performance features. They are very lightweight, offer a 6-pawl engagement system, they're fitted with very durable bearings, and are very easy to service. We've tried and tested many brands of hubs over the years and we feel Bitex offer excellent value for money and are a really solid choice.
We also offer Hope Tech hubs for those who wish to level-up on our hand-built wheels. We can also supply many other rim and hub brands if you have something in mind.
Whether it's a light-weight road wheel or heavy-hitting mountain bike wheelset you're after, we will have the stock to build the right set for you.

How It Works
We stock a good range of rims from Kinlin, H Plus Son & Stans. If there is a specific rim combination you are looking for we will be able or order it with in a couple of days. With options from Mavic, Enve, Venn, Hed & WTB are to name a few.
Hope, Bitex, DT Swiss and Shimano are the hubs we stock and generally sell the most of. Similar to the rims, if there is a hub that you specifically want we will be able to order it.
We have a spoke cutting and treading machine at Seabass Cycles. Ensuring we always have the correct length spokes and they are always exact to the millimetre. We always use Sapim spokes. For our Seabass Wheels we use Race spokes, but do carry stock of D-Lite and C X-Ray again if you have specific ideas in mind.
