A set of wheels are in for review and in the midst of getting installed on the famous Salsa Casseroll..Â Utilizing a Shimano Alfine groupset I have been piecing together in the past 6 months, and the new Velocity Dyad Halo reflective rims.
Due to needing to rebuild the bike completely to use these wheels, group and new Dynamo lighting system I haven’t gotten a test ride yet.
Have any of you seen the Halo rims, or utilized the Alfine group.Â What has your experience been on either?
