Wheel set up
This service is an add-on to a wheel or wheelset purchase.
Designed for the fans of max convenience, for the ones that don't have the tools, the knowledge, the time or the patience. Or any of that. We, at NSC, work hard to amplify access to carbon wheels, and have thought that eliminating the 'set up' barrier might bring more of you closer to the NS Family.
Set ups are not just time consuming and require specific tooling - sometimes they can be a bit tricky to get right the first couple of times and it's not unlikely that many of us end up having to visit our mates at the local bike shop seeking some help to properly install valve extenders, or fit a super tight tire, for example.
This service is the first of its kind in the carbon wheel market, and therefore, still in its infancy and while we're confident and well equipped to provide you with the perfect set up, we're sure some aspects will see further evolution as we learn along the way.
WHY?// Wheel/set ready to roll upon receiving them
// No time spent purchasing components and installing them yourself
// Certainty that the wheels are fully and appropriately set up (e.g. no air leakage between valve extender and valve stem)
// No need to take your wheels to a bike shop to be set up if you don't have the tools to do it yourself or just don't know how
