Grand Cru PBP Rear Wheel (Disc Touring Hub, 135mm, 700c)

Grand Cru Disc Rear Touring Hub laced to 700c VO PBP rim with DT Swiss spokes. 32 hole, 135mm frame spacing.

The Grand Cru Rear Touring Hub is designed for long distance riding and easy serviceability. The sturdy hub shell is our own design. It boasts a large-flange hub with room for four identical and rather large cartridge bearings. We use very high quality Japanese bearings of a common size and relatively easily replaced if they ever do wear out.

The axle is hollow and oversized. The free-hub body is steel for durability. There are three pawls with sturdy springs. The hub fits up to a 10-speed cassette; you can fit a 7-speed cassette by adding a 4.5mm spacer. The VO enclosed-cam quick release skewer is included. Hub accepts 6 bolt rotors.

A video showing how to disassemble the Grand Cru hub for field servicing without tools can be found here.

The PBP rim fits tires up to 35mm. These are very strong rims suitable for touring as well as commuting.

Diagonales are triple box section rims; they are made from aluminum alloy that is highly polished. The eyelets are stainless steel. Outside width is 19mm.

Note: this is an oversized item, so our free shipping promotion does not apply. But your shipping cost will never exceed $22 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).
