Hand built DT Swiss 350 hubs into RR 411 road rims
Moonglu Wheelworks hand built classic road wheels featuring DT Swiss 350 hubs and RR 411 rims.
DT Swiss cartridge bearing equipped 350 series hubs built into a new generation DT Swiss road rim. The most advanced alloy existing for rims meets the most advanced rim profile to form the RR 411 rim. From the moment the alloy is melted all the way to the secret surface treatment, this rim is all about getting the absolute best out of the great, shiny metal that is aluminum. Very light, very strong, very classy is the result. In its asymmetric version it allows us to build wheels with even tension, making for an even crispier ride.
These wheels are an excellent upgrade wheel set and customer feedback so far highlights the extra comfort and smoothness of the wider profile, lighter weight RR 411 rim. The front wheel is built with a radial spoke pattern, the rear is 2 cross on both sides with an asymmetric rim.
I have gone for reliability again with these wheels to better deal with UK riding conditions. I could save a few grams with alloy nipples but experience has taught me that brass is a much better material when road salt is involved. The 350 series hubs are well sealed and easy to service when the time comes.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Hi Neil, Hope you are well. I have some Hope winter wheels with Hope Pro3 hubs and Stans 400 rims which I've worn the rims out on. I was wondering what you would suggest to maintain or better the low weight for winter / wet riding but maintain the winter riding abaility. I believe the hubs are fine. I ride a titanium SPA frame so the bike is pretty comfy as it is but I do not like these Stans rims as i find them a pain to remove tyres and Ive never run tubeless on the road - I tend to run latex tubes and Conti 4 season tyres 25mm. Being a light rider ~65kg I've found this combination very good. I'm interested in your expert opinion as I've been looking throughyour web page. I see the DT RR411 look a similar weigh rim. There is no hurry as i have other wheels if I need to switch. Currently I'm still riding on the wheels but I know the rims are well past their indicators. Hopefully summer will come soon :-) Prices would also be good of course. Thanks, Martin
Hi Martin, thanks for leaving a message.
I'd be happy to rebuild your wheels with new rims if the hubs are in worthwhile condition. It sounds like they are.
The RR411 would be an ideal replacement, it is a great quality rim, slightly wider profile but that would suit your 25mm tyres better than the Alpha 400s. I have the RR411s on my summer bike and they build really well and I've had no issues at all with them.
I guess your wheels are 32 hole front and rear? I'd probably need to rebuild with new spokes because the lengths will be different. The cost is likely to be £295 for the rims, spokes and rebuild.
If you decide to have the work done please drop the wheels off at your convenience.
