Hand Built Mountain Bike Wheels
Neil has built Moonglu's wheel building business on custom mountain bike wheels. We now offer wheels in all 3 mountain bike wheels sizes, 26", 27.5" or 650b and 29" /29er for a range of applications from cross country riding and racing through trail, all mountain and Enduro, right up to wide profile big mountain and downhill. We are big fans of Hope Technology.
The Pro 4 hubs have proved to be a huge success, with options for just about every bike out there including BOOST and Fat Bike. For everyday UK riding they are one of the most reliable, versatile and cost effective hubs available and a big plus for us, they are available in 6 anodized colours. Get some Moonglu Hope Hoops with better quality and tougher rims.
We're also big fans of DT Swiss mountain bike rims. After a total redesign a few years ago, they now have a range that covers every discipline. Rim construction is as good as we've seen when building wheels and our warranty problems are virtually non existent.
DT Swiss mountain bike rims have been a popular upgrade and custom wheel option for a Moonglu. The EX471, EX511, XM481, XM521 and XM421 rims have all built into class leading wheelsets especially when built onto the Hope Pro 4 hub.
Stans No Tubes rims have now been added back into our handbuilt wheel list. We will be working with the Arch, Flow and Sentry MK3 tubeless rims in all rim diameters. The newest addition is the Flow EX3 available in 27.5" and 29er only.
Hope Fortus mountain bike wheels are now available to order from Moonglu. We have 3 rim diameter options, 6 hub colours and numerous frame fit options. All Fortus wheels supplied by Moonglu come with tubeless tape and valves included in the price.
Shimano Microspline 12 Speed. We can supply wheels with the Shimano Microspline freehub body fitted free of charge. Currently out DT Swiss 240s / EX511/EX471 wheels builds have this option. From 1st January 2020 all our Hope wheel builds will have the Pro 4 Microspline freehub body option.
