I’ve been using the same spoke prep compound for more than 30yrs. This wheel is one I built more than 8yrs ago. Alloy (Sapim) nipples - still in perfect condition with no signs of corrosive locking. Yes, I can say one component of my spoke prep is boiled linseed oil, but there are a few other important ingredients that make it totally functional as a spoke prep. #astutowheels

Refitting our fleet of SL-88 rental bikes to latest HH40 (HammerHarder) wheelsets. The latest evolution of our popular 167 line. #astutowheels #astutocc The HammerHarder series is based on proven components like DT Swiss Hubs, Sapim CX Spokes and our own mold rims developed over more than 10yrs making carbon wheels. We are not a ‘sticker brand’ , but actually specify and assemble each and every wheelset from the road up.
