Wheel Building

After a phone or email discussion with you we will recommend a wheel prescription for you. This will be based on your weight, what you want the wheels for, and your budget.

  • We can make you beautiful hand built wheels that are lighter, stronger and cheaper (but unfortunately not all three!) than most machine built wheels
  • We can build you strong touring wheels that won’t leave you stranded
  • We can build you light, strong, aerodynamic racing wheels
  • We can build you wheels which incorporate a PowerTap hub so you can train with power

Hubs – we use Shimano, Campagnolo, American Classic, Royce, Phil Wood, Novatec, Hope, Chris King etc.

Rims – Ambrosio, DT Swiss, American Classic, Fast Forward, Citec, Light Bicycle etc.

Spokes – we use silver, double-butted stainless spokes – but can build with bladed spokes etc.

Cost (labour)

  • Build:  £70/wheel (£135/pair)
