The wheels are custom built using Mavic XX rims and the XIXIX hubs. The XIXIX hubs were only laced to XY rims from Mavic and the hubs were never technically sold by themselves, but I found a pair that made it to market!
This is my first Powerlite, and first 4130 race frame, and it is awesome experience to ride: its stiff when you need it to be, and slightly forgiving on the rough tracks!
Oh, my description won't be complete without saying this bike is light, fast and smooth...
