Marvinator rims with Quando track hubs

Last week I picked up a┬áMarvinator wheelset from Gear Brisbane. The wheels are Gear Brisbane’s bottom-of-the-range wheels (and do not currently appear on their web site). The┬áMarvinator rims from Colossi are built up with Quando hubs with sealed bearings. I am not sure what the spokes are. The Quando hub is a flip/flop hub.

Apparently the wheels are handbuilt in Brisbane by their “master wheel builder”. Pretty good value wheels for $230.

I weighed the Marvinator wheelset at 1048 grams for the front wheel and 1129 grams for the rear wheel, without rim tape or a sprocket/freewheel.

I am planning to put these wheels on my orange Cell Fixie frame, Wonder Woman, moving the wheelset from that bike to Project Beetlejuice.
