We answered some of the questions we get asked most frequently. Can't find the answer you are looking for? Please contact us:
As wheel building specialists, we believe that the wheel build process and quality should match the quality of the parts. Unfortnently most shops cut corners, lack the experince or tools and don't stress relieve the wheels properly.
Our handbuilt wheels are more durable, stay true longer, require less maintenance and don't lose tension due to our rigorous de-stressing process. A great wheel is a work of art, balancing strength and functionality. Perfection takes time.
Wheels are often the best and most noticable upgrade you can get for you bike.
Modern bikes offer a good value when it comes to the components, with the notable exception being the wheels - most bike brands will opt for cheap stock wheels, often machine built with poor quality hubs /spokes/nipples.
A high quality handbuilt wheelset will often last years and will be worth moving onto the next bike down the line.
We'll be happy to help you figure out all of the details! Please email us at email@example.com what wheelset you are interested in and your bike's model, year, and build kit and we'll help you figure it out!
We use specialty tools that allow us to achieve extremely high tolerances: <0.4mm radial and lateral deviation, <5% spoke tension variance.
We mostly use a 3-cross pattern. Some manufacturers require a 2-cross pattern for their 29" rims, (Weareone, Nobl, etc...) in that case we will use a 2 cross pattern.
