Going through changes

2023 brings change to the Stayer offering and ordering process. ⁠

We are super excited to say that from the middle of next month standard sizes of all of our frame models will be available to purchase via the website. ⁠

Manufactured in small batches the production of standard size frames will happen at different times for different models throughout the year. We will give a bit of warning when pre-orders will open for each model and then if there are any left over they will become available as in stock on the website. ⁠

These changes will also coincide with a bit of a website revamp and product reshuffle. From then also all new custom frame orders, including custom sizes, will move to a waiting list order system on a first come basis. ⁠

And so! ⁠
We begin with our new and improved Stayer Crit frame. This full Columbus build will be available to order as a frame set or full bike in a range of standard sizes – geo’s to be released in a few weeks time. ⁠

Keep an eye on our social or sign up to the newsletter for updates. Everything will be up and running in just over a month with a super cool merch package for pre-order trailblazers. ⁠

Gravel Adventure

24 int | 35 deep | asymmetric | 650b or 700c

Red Hope PRO4 hubs, Gloss Black decals

Gravel Adventure

from £1,495.00 inc. UK Tax

A true tough gravel wheel set. For serious fun and adventuring.

Strengthened carbon fiber rims to handle off-road trails and built with the strongest spokes, the best brass nipples and of course the most reliable hubs out there. And by wheel builders who know about adventuring by bike!

Optimally to be used with fat tyres from 35 to 45c for comfort and traction on road, gravel and singletrack. These rims are asymmetric and reinforced for serious mixed-terrain, a hookless design for pinch-free riding at low tyre pressures.

As always; hand-built in house, to order and to your specifications.

If you are unsure about any of the choices below please do leave them unchecked or get in touch, and we can help you work it all out.

Current wheel build turnaround is 6-8 weeks

And as always – just get in touch if you’d like to chat anything through.

We build these wheels order,  so we’ve got the scope to go pretty custom!
And we can build you exactly what your heart desires. 

  • Son Delux + Tune?

    We can do that, just get in touch!

  • Different hubs altogether?

    We can, and do, build with different hubs - DT Swiss, Chris King, Industry Nine etc. Just get in touch for pricing, ETAs and of course any advice if you'd like it.

That’s just a couple of suggestions, whatever it is that you’ve got in mind- just ask 👍


If you’d like something different that we don’t seem to offer – just get in touch on the contact form below.

’cause we can probably do it …try us anyway 😉

You can find some good examples on our CUSTOM DEEP DIVE page.

Sapim CX-Ray or Alpina F1 Sprint Spokes

  • Cut and thread

    in house, a wheelset at a time. So they are the exact length required

  • 24/28 lacing

    or 24/24 or 28/28 depending on rider use and weight

  • Silver or black

    Spokes and nipples, up to you!

  • Brass nipples

    We can also build these with alloy nipples on request. Alloy nipples are absolutely strong enough when built on carbon, however, they don't last as well in bad weather and can seize, and so for this wheelset which you want to be able to ride anywhere, in any conditions, for many many years - we recommend durability over weight-saving.

  • Bladed

    This is 'aero' but actually the main advantage is that the shape allows for the best impact absorption without sacrificing strength and power-transmission. This extends the lifetime off the spokes themselves as well as all their surrounding components

Images from Gran Fondo article 2019 (we’ve moved and grown a little since then :))

We can provide and install extra components to go with your wheelset.

Tell us if you’d like a quote/information in your order notes,
or get in touch in the contact form below.


We can provide and install tyres by almost any brand, inlcuding WTB | Schwalbe | Continental | Goodyear | Teravail | Hutchinson  | Vittoria | Michelin | Maxxis | Panaracer | Donnelly | Challenge | etc!

Bought with a wheelset, we do these at 5% off RRP. 

Tubeless fitting, including sealant:

£15/pair when we supply the tyres
£30/pair when you supply the tyres


We can provide and install cassettes by  Shimano | SRAM | Ingrid | Campagnolo etc


We can provide and install rotors by Shimano | SRAM | Hope | Swisstop | Campagnolo | TRP | Tektro | Avid | etc

FYI : Hope CLD rotors are available to match your hub colour, but are only available in 160mm. 

The hubs are all Center-lock disc, if you already have 6-bolt disc rotors we can provide DT-Swiss 6-bolt to centerlock adaptors, which are brilliant. £30/pair.

Anything else

We can provide all kinds of components, e.g. anything Hope !

So feel free to ask if there’s anything you’d like that doesn’t attach to your wheelset directly 😉 and we can get you a quote. 

We’re also very happy to advise if you’re unsure what to go for . 

We (hand) build, to order

and we like to know who (and what) we’re building for, as you might need a few more spokes, or a few less. Or maybe you need brass nipples rather than alloy, or maybe you would prefer silver spokes to black..! etc

So please do drop us some information in the order notes about your weight, your intended use, and anything else you’d like to say so that we can make that this wheel set is built absolutely right for you.

Building every wheel individually -with skill, and taking a great deal of care with every step of the process- means that: 

  • our spoke lengths are perfect by 0.5mm (too short and your nipples are prone to braking prematurely as they are not being re-inforced by the spoke within, too long and the threads are having to be 'cut' by the nipple threads).

  • the spokes and nipples are assembled with the right amounts, and types, of grease.

  • the wheels are not only built to be visually straight, but also round and correcty & evenly tensioned, which are more important for the durability of the build. I.e. if you imagine some spokes being loose and others tight then the tight ones do all the work while the looser ones can continuously get looser... With our wheels all of your spokes will do the work for you 😉 not just a few.

On top of that they’re built for you; your weight and your riding. A wheelset for a 6 foot 4 (physical-)powerhouse shouldn’t be the same as for a 5 foot 4 nimble climber should it?
