More wheels for the Vortex

I’ve completed another 2 sets of wheels for the Vortex (in addition to the set of Velocity A23 wheels that I built first). The goofy looking deep profile wheels use carbon fiber rims from in the standard Vortex sizes of 700 rear and 406 fronts with Ultremo tires all around. The normal looking wheels (far right picture) are Velocity Aeroheat rims but in smaller than stock sizes. In order to lower the whole trike, I used a 559 rear and 349 fronts with Stelvio tires all around. With this setup, the Vortex is almost identical to one of my favorite trikes, the Pseudo Monster. The frame and steering geometry are about the same. I’ll enjoy experimenting with the 3 sets of wheels.
