Why choose Moonglu Wheels?
All Moonglu wheels are hand built in house by owner Neil Dunkley. They are laced, tensioned and trued using the same methods for each and every wheel. What started as a desire to build a set of wheels for a personal bike became a passion and solid part of our business. With over 10 years of wheel building experience and as keen cyclists ourselves, we provide the professional and impartial advice required when choosing custom cycle wheels.
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 big mountain and downhill. We are big fans of Hope Technology. For 2016 they have redesigned their hub range, releasing the Pro 4 Disc hub with updated options such as BOOST. 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. We're always looking at different hub and rim options for our wheels and we have also built with DT Swiss 240s and 350 series hubs. 2016 sees us changing the focus of our mountain bike rim business. In previous years we have built a lot of wheels using Stans NoTubes rims but for 2016 we have moved to DT Swiss. Their new range offers rims for all applications and their EX471 rim in particular has received some great reviews. We will also continue to offer the Mavic EN821 and XM819 UST Disc rims in both 26" and 29". View mountain bike wheels.
Custom road bike wheels
2015 was the year of the road disc revolution. Many manufacturers adopted disc brakes on their road, gravel and cross bikes and almost overnight customers were looking to upgrade their wheels, mostly to save some rotating weight. For 2016 we will be using Hope Technology's new Pro 4 road disc hubs and DT 350 hubs for our road disc wheels. We will have a range of rims to offer including DT Swiss's new R460 DB and deeper section RR511.
We have scaled back our offering of handbuilt conventional road wheels. We will still offer our R460 road rim on either DT 350 or Miche Primato hubs but will expand our store to include pre-built wheels from DT Swiss. They offer an outstanding range of wheels from entry level alloy clincher right up to Pro Tour level carbon. View road bike wheels.
