Café Racer 46 Disc, White Industries CLD Shimano/SRAM drive
Life's more than just going fast, you want to look the best doing it. The Cafe Racer 46 is most at home on the road (actually it's most at home up the road) thanks to the 46mm depth, but it's more than happy to pretty up your cross and gravel adventures, too. With the same 28.5mm outer width and 21.5mm inner width as the RCG36, the Café Racer 46 is aerodynamically ideal with 28mm tires (i.e. most current 25s) but will happily dance with anything from a true 25 (i.e. most 23s) to a 42mm gravel tire. Thanks to its light weight (less than many carbon rim brake clinchers of similar depth), you won't want to leave it at home for the climby days, either.
White Industries' CLD hubs have been our go-to for as long as we can remember. 48 point engagement and available in QR, 12mm, and 15mm front and QR and 12x142 rear axle formats. Switching between axle formats requires optional axles but no bearing switch or re-dishing is needed. Both SRAM/Shimano and XD drive are available (this order page is for Shimano drive). Purple and gold also available as color options, they just don't fit in the product page.
Laced with black Sapim CX Rays and black brass nipples (other options available as custom orders), 2x crossing throughout. Includes tubeless ready rim tape (the best for tubes, too).
