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. ⁠

    In our experience these are the most durable hubs out there. They don't even develop play and the bearings last like none other, ask anyone who's used them for a Cyclocross season or two.

Bare with us on the photo 😉 There’s been a DT Swiss drought and since getting out hands on some we haven’t managed to build and properly photograph a Gravalloy x DT350 wheelset yet. But these are the hubs!

SON Dynamo

The SON 28 dynamo option,  to light your own way through the nights.

from £744 with a DT350 rear hub inc UK Tax

Stayer all road carbon wheel set Son Schmidt Delux 12mm through axle sondelux hub dynamo tubeless

27.5" option

As these rims are 28/28 hole the dynamo hub options are more limited. 

  • Son Delux 12mm, Shutter Precision PL-8X 15mm or PL-7 12mm

  • Black

  • CLD / 6-bolt IS

    SON Delux - centerlock only. Shutter Precision centerlock or 6-bolt.

  • No BOOST option currently

29" option

As we can build these as 32/32 (as well as 28/28 or 28/32) there are more dynamo options. And SON is our top pick.

  • Black, Silver, Blue or Red

    Depending on model

  • Centerlock disc or 6-bolt

    depending on model

  • SON is the best dynamo brand out there,

    hands down. Which is important as you cannot service a dynamo hub, if there's an issue (e.g. play) then it needs replacing.

Please do just get in touch if the Dynamo options are confusing,
we’re here in the workshop and very happy to help!

Other options

We build to order, so there are many options !

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.

  • Cut and thread

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

  • lacing : 27.5" 28/28 | 29" 28/32

    or 28/28 or 32/32 for the 29", depending rider use and weight

  • Silver or black

    Spokes and nipples, up to you!

  • Brass nipples

    - every time with alloy disc builds. This is because the alloy nipples are a lot softer than the rims which are made from a very hard aluminium (carbon in contrast is gentle on it's surrounding components) and over a couple of years of use even the best quality alloy nipples will likely fail. We can do it if you really want! But advise against it 🙂

  • 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?
