Dependable high strength wheelset for road riding with rim brakes.
The Lark uses our JRA road hubs with stainless steel bearings laced to our 20mm internal width, tubeless compatible road rim. Sapim D-Light spokes combined with our in-house wheelbuilding quality to create one of the strongest performance road wheelsets available.
The rear wheel is built with a 2:1 spoke pattern (9 spokes on the non-drive side, 18 on the drive side) giving these wheels a similar strength to a 36-spoke wheel while the large flange spacing of the front hub gives the front wheel huge strength at a light weight.

why buy from us
We’ve been building wheels since 2005 and selling online in 2006. We developed our wheel building process and refined the components we offer for more than 17 years to offer reliable a wheels.
read our story here.
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.
- changeable axles
- TPI bearings
- anti-bite guard
- laser etched decals
about your wheels
custom built wheels
This wheelset is built to order. We hold most parts in stock and build them after you have ordered. The build time is advertised on the front page on under the title.
- Wheels are set-up with the axles and freehub you have selected.
- All wheels have tubeless tape applied.
- There are no additional parts provided.
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.
handbuilt in the UK
We built the wheels in our York, UK workshop.
