Review Wheelset Dasar Bule a.k.a Clayton Marshall

This article is written and published for honoring of Clayton Marshall a.k.a Dasar Bule, as one of the best wheelset custom builder I've ever known.

Due to his origin is not from Indonesia, I will write this article both in Indonesian and English.

Disclaimer: I bought this wheelset with normal price. This review is completely based on my personal opinion, non-biased and independent, I personally or YSCC as an organization, get no money or whatsoever from him.

It took me around 6 months or around 1.000 km using this wheelset just to let me fully experience it.

My first contact with him was around September 2017, got his number from my cycling friends (yes it's plural, maybe 4 or 5 friends of mine) who already built one before me and most of them are completely satisfied with him.

He is a real nice guy that you can just hop in and contact him personally via Whatsapp and amazingly fast  respond. He asked me a few things at first, my body weight, my main cycling activity that I intended to use with this wheelset and yes, my budget hahaha..

So this wheelset was mainly built for my multipurpose cycling, climbing, flat and you know the road condition in Indonesia, harsh, but I also told him that I am a non competitive triathlon enthusiast, so, I would love a really fast pace.

It ended up with Chris King Hub (non ceramic) with Sapim aero spokes with his own custom rim. I completely forgot the details, so I might make some mistakes. Basically if you want to make a completely custom stuff, you don't really need to know the details, because he knows better. Just yank everything you need and trust him. Like a haircut hahaha..

About a few days, faster than what he promised me, the package arrived safely in my house wohooo..
