Detour: Birth of a Carbon Wheel

Every once in awhile we detour from Italian cycling to another subject area of cycling. This time we have a video from Easton showing the elaborate, labor-intensive process, of building a carbon wheel that begins with a carbon laminate sheet and seven hours later ends with a wheel being packed for shipment. The video, seven minutes, is filmed in Easton's own factory in Tijuana, Mexico.

Defending Tour de France champion Cadel Evans is riding Easton EC90s in the Tour.
