High performance lightweight road wheelset based around our lightest hubs including stainless bearings, laced to our 25mm wide (20mm internal), tubeless compatible road rim.

The Lark rim features a 20mm internal width to support tyres of any width from 25mm upwards and improve handling and air flow over the rim for faster riding. The rear wheel is built with a 2:1 lacing pattern with 16 spokes on the drive side and 8 on the non-drive-side for maximum strength and even spoke tensions.

We recommend the Lark Light J-bend wheelset for riders up to 85kg. If you are looking for stronger wheels for touring or commuting try our Lark strong wheels with higher spoke counts and no rider weight limits.

our hubs

Just Riding Along wheelsets are built around premium quality hubs from Bitex in Taiwan. We have used these hubs on all of our own-brand wheelsets since 2014 with proven reliability and durability.


All wheels include a 5 year warranty on hub shells, and 3 year on all other parts.

Bearing wear is not included.


6 pawls in 2 groups engage the drive ring inside the hub shell. The groups are offset slightly to double the points of engagement (POE) for a fast response to pedal input. M-type hubs have 6.7 degree, 54 POE, R-type hubs have 7.5 degree, 48 POE.

about your wheels

build quality

During the building process all components are bedded in, stretched, and tensioned repeatedly so the wheels won’t go out of true. We inspect, check and finish every wheel with equal care.
