Grand Cru Escapade Front Wheel (High Flange Hub, 700c)
Grand Cru High Flange Front Hub laced to 700c VO Escapade rim with DT Swiss spokes, 36 hole.
Our High Flange Front Hub features the same polished and clear anodized finish, chrome plated axle, and high quality Japanese bearings (the same that you might find on a hub that costs twice as much). The hubshell design is a VO original, and the Grand Cru logo is stamped - not laser etched - giving it a more classic yet very durable aesthetic. The VO enclosed-cam quick release skewer is included
The Escapade rim fits tires up to 2.25". You can guess that these are very strong rims suitable for loaded touring and bikepacking as well as commuting and cyclo-touring.
Escapades are triple box section rims; they are made from aluminum alloy that has a brushed finish paired with machined sidewalls. The eyelets are stainless steel. Outside width is 27.7mm.
Note: this is an oversized item, so our free shipping promotion does not apply. But your shipping cost will never exceed $19 for orders to the contiguous US. Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, military addresses, and overseas will be quoted separately. Due to size restrictions, we can't send wheels to certain countries (at least not at reasonable cost).
