What are our origins?
Several years ago, I was looking at upgrading my mountain and road bike wheels. At that stage, a set of factory wheels were prohibitively expensive. Being quite mechanically minded from a career in aircraft maintenance, I started investigating how I could build my own wheels. I did a bit of searching and came across Roger Musson's website and wheel building book. I studied it from cover to cover and learnt how to build my own. My friends and friends of friends became interested in my wheels and asked for their own custom wheel set as the performance of these wheels were comparable to the more expensive factory wheels; thus commencing my journey of wheel building.
What is our vision?
Well, it is quite simple. We aim to produce custom wheels which meet our customers' needs and wants and supply cycling products which are reliable, serviceable and backed up by quality support .
Our mission is to provide:
What information will we need in preparation to build a set of wheels?
How much for a wheel rebuild or wheel true cost?
What are our favourite/recommended components to use for wheel builds?
Hubs: Novatec, Hope, DT Swiss, Chris King
Spokes: DT Swiss Competition, Revolution, Aero Comp and Aerolite and Sapim CX-Rays
Rims: Stans ZTR range, Nextie Carbon, Kinlin, Gousseau and H Plus Sons
There are many fine products out there, but these are the products that we have found to suit the needs and wants of our customers and that we like to build wheels with. If you have a particular wheel set in mind, ask us to give you a quote, you might be pleasantly surprised.
