I currently have a Project on the go that i have been slowly collecting parts for over the last couple of months .

Heres some pics of the wheelset wich will give you a big clue as to what i am building .
Got hold of some NOS Sun rims off a boardmember here along with some Red Hadley GT Hubs , i had some red nipples saved up as well so i gave them to my old mucker and Retrobike wheelbuilder Cannondale King to work his magic.
I am sure you will agree what came back is pretty sweet nicely tensioned and a sweet build with DT swiss double butted spokes .

I know this is a blantant plug for Cannondale King but these wheels are the dogs danglys !!

I think I'm right in saying the ones with the etched logo's were made by Hadley. I've got a red set also, just changed the brearings in the rear. Very well made hubs.
Think there was another version with stuck on logos made by Machine Tech? Not as good as the Hadley made version.

I forgot about this post...

So were the hubs/wheel sets standard on some GT`s?

or an aftermarket option?
