We Have A Winner: AmClassic Wheels Contest!
Congratulations to Adam Fivehouse of Denver CO - winner of the American Classic 420 Aero 3 wheelset! It turns out these wheels are a perfect fit for Adam's rides - which include a everything from racing to commuting. Thanks to everyone who entered and stay tuned to PEZ for our next contest giveaway.


Adam has won his choice of either the American Classic’s 420 Aero 3 wheelset for Rim brakes OR Disc brakes. "I was telling Richard that the timing on this could not have been any better. I just had to retire an old wheel a few weeks ago when the rim cracked. So out with the old and in with a shiny new set of American Classics!"

Designed for both traditional tires and tubes, or go tubeless - but the kicker is that AMClassic’s founder and design brain Bill Shook, has designed a wheel that doesn’t compromise either choice.  Read why Bill loves tubeless wheels here.


The 420 AERO rim-brake pair weighs an impressive 1530 grams, and are priced at an even more impressive $799.00. An awesome wheel at an awesome price.

Here’s what our reviewer Jayson O'Mahoney said:
The 420 Aero Disc Tubeless wheelset is a solid and reliable wheelset that is perfect for road, gravel or cyclocross use. The sheer versatility of this wheelset cannot be overlooked. With their easily convertible hubs, it is a simple matter of obtaining the appropriate axle kit from the American Classic website should you decide to upgrade your bike. And, they can run tubeless or with tubes.
