A23 "Blem" wheelsets: low price, high standards


As a testament to The Wheel Department's high standards, occasionally a rim gets rejected for minor cosmetic blemishes. Typically, we offer the rejected rims to shop employees and co-ops at a significant discount, but for a limited time we're letting everyone in on the deal.

For $199.99, you get a pair of 32 hole A23 wheels laced to our Sport hubs with Velocity stainless steel spokes and DT Swiss brass nipples, and our own Velotape rim tape already installed.

Even better, each wheelset is hand-built start to finish by our experts in The Wheel Department. You may be able to find a comparable wheelset for around the same price, but we can guarantee you that these wheels will arrive straighter, rounder and with more even tension than any wheelset at this price point.

Despite the discount, we still build these to the same standards of every other Velocity wheelset that leaves TWD. Our professional wheel builders proudly sign off each wheel, and we stand behind these like any wheel that leaves TWD. 

Run these on your road bike, cross bike, commuter, with tubes, without tubes, however you'd like. You're not just getting a great deal on a wheelset, you're getting a great deal on a wheel build.
