Hand Made Wheel Building : La Fourmi Wheels

List of common wheel building for trekking / travelling.

The Rims I use : Ryde (Andra) or DT Swiss.

Ryde is a dutsh Rim maker that has bought the ancient and famous french brand that was called RIGIDA. Andra Rims are the strongest bicycle Rims ever made.

DT Swiss is also making good trekking Rims.
