Strong Trekking Wheel : Andra 30 La Fourmi

Oliver’s rim failed in Africa, so he has ordered me a strong wheel.
Andra’s Rim are renowned for longs travels and world tours, they are made to build bombproof wheels in association with a strong hub and quality spokes.
I’ve built Oliver’s new 26″ rear trekking wheel with an XT 756 rear hub, the last strong hub built by shimano, that is fortunately still produced these days.
After building, the wheel was stress-relieved up it was stabilized and ready for the road.
I’ve built my personnal Trekking Bike rear Wheel with an Andra 30, 28 inches Rim.
