Wheel Builder's Comments

These Shimamo RS-505 road disc hubs have only recently become available. The hubs feature Shimano's well sealed and easily serviceable, reliable cup and cone bearing system. They offer a low cost option for standard quick release road disc hubs and are a perfect mate for the incredibly good value DT Swiss R460 700c disc rims. In my opinion these are a perfect 2nd set of wheels or a low cost wheel upgrade package. I have used nipple washers to improve long term durability of the non eyeletted alloy rims.
