Nap time over 😁
My completed hand built wheel set for Gaia 2.0, my new Performer High Racer recumbent project. 
All rubbered up with a set of Schwalbe Durano's, my favourite everyday tyre.

I don't normally run a rear brake so I have not installed a rotor on the rear wheel, I'm dangerous like that 😂

Shimano XT Disk hubs, Mavic XC717 standard rims, I used rim brake rims for two reasons, one; so I can run a Velogical dynamo on the front, and two; so I can disk the rear wheel at a later date if wanted.
DT Swiss double butted, Competition spokes, and brass nipples, Volox rim tapes, Schwalbe Tyres and tubes.
