Aerospoke wheels were designed with every rider in mind, not just the 130 pounders. The wheels offer something for everyone; the sport rider, fitness rider, fixie or commuter no longer has to true their wheels. They can use that time riding instead. The competitor (even the Clydesdale or Athena) can have a fast, aerodynamic wheel that is also durable and resilient. Aerospoke wheels start out true and remain true and are considered some of the stiffest wheels on the planet – maximizing power transfer efficiency without wheel deformation or lateral bending.
Many competitive cyclists have a training and a racing set of wheels. They only use the racing wheels for special events, treating them like Grandma does her fine china. With Aerospoke you only need the one set; get on and ride it everyday! Add to that the quick-change hubs, sealed bearings, and their easy low-cost exchange policy and you have the best winning combination in all of cycling. Plus, Aerospoke wheels are priced far below many other high-performance wheelsets, so you don’t have to sacrifice your groceries to get them. No expensive trips to the bike shop for truing adds to the value.
Our aerodynamic spokes have a wing-like cross-section, reducing drag substantially. Comparing how our wheels cut through the air to how traditional spoke wheels do is like comparing a sleek aircraft wing to an old fashioned egg beater. Wind resistance becomes more and more important as a wheel spins faster until it trumps weight as a key performance enhancer.
The strength of Aerospoke wheels is legendary. Some call them “bombproof”. Aerospoke wheels can withstand punishment unimaginable for other wheels. When police bike fleets are looking for rugged wheels that must deliver without question, they choose Aerospoke.
Clydsdales and Athenas can leave their spoke wrenches at home for good – Aerospoke wheels have far less maintenance points than the fussy spoke wheels; hit a bump or a pot hole and keep on riding. Many of our customers tell us they choose Aerospoke wheels for long distance trips – those 500, 1,000, even 5,000 mile odysseys where wheel maintenance cannot be an issue. Aerospoke wheels deliver.
Aerospoke five-spoke wheels are classic. Whether viewed in their natural, charcoal color (carbon fiber color), painted or the new advanced graphics patterns, these wheels really set off the entire bike.
Aerospoke hubs and hardware are machined from solid billets of 7075 Aluminum – the same superior quality Aluminum alloy found in aircraft. Ratchets and cassettes are made from ion-nitrided steel for maximum hardness and durability. All hubs and hardware are made in Milford, Michigan plant to exacting quality standards.
All Aerosopoke five-spoke wheels are assembled proudly using American craftsmanship and the finest materials. We machine and assemble the components of Aerospoke hubs and hardware in our Milford, Michigan facility. Each wheel receives a multiple-point inspection to insure that the strict manufacturing tolerances are maintained.
[Q] Do the wheels come assembled?
[A] Wheels come with hubs, spokes, and rim strips assembled. If you purchase tensioners or a free wheel, that will need to be assembled. Please also note, tubes and tires are NOT included. Although assembly is possible to do yourself, Pacific Beach Bikes HIGHLY encourages having a professional assemble your bicycle. If you want to get the most out of your bicycle, have it assembled by a professional; it’s an easy investment to have your bike ride smoothly, last a long time, and OPERATE SAFELY! You wouldn’t try to unprofessionally assemble your own computer, transmission, or house, so don’t do it to your bicycle!
