Building up my first bike from the frame up, I wanted to splurge on the wheelset and get one that will last me a long time. Went with the Stan's Flow EX on Hope Pro 2 hubs, double butted spokes on a stainless steel freehub body.
I've put quite a bit of abuse on them since the build was done, and they feel great. Tension is holding up great, looks true as it can be. I'm really happy with them so far. The 1 year warranty is a nice bonus, but hopefully won't be necessary.
Shipping was only a few days late, I think 2. I wasn't too worried. Rather have it done right and late than rushed and botched.
Quality work for a reasonable price, with a lot of custom options.

Debra was super helpful with my order and the wheels are exactly what I was looking for. I love my new wheels (White Industries CLD hubs and DT Swiss X329 rims with Sapim Race spokes) and they're exactly what my disc brake road bike needed to be everything I hoped for.
Thank you so much for providing such a great proudct and customer service.

Ordered up a set of wheels after getting thorough and patient help from them in selecting the pieces. They arrived, and they're excellent! All the hallmarks of a professionally built wheel are in evidence. There was no settling of the wheel when I first applied weight to them, and of course they're completely true and correctly dished.
I'm hard to please, but I'm completely satisfied with the whole experience, and will look to them again when it's time for another set of wheels.

I ordered a set of stans grails on hope pro Evo 2 hubs a little before xmas. They quoted me 3 weeks which was fair. 2 weeks after ordering they showed up and man. were they awesome. I've put on around 200 miles on dirt roads/ and single track with my straggler in the last few weeks and they've performed flawlessly. The guys here helped me place my order and emailed me keeping me up to speed on my wheels progress. Top notch service and top not wheels

I had some Pacenti SL23 built by PWB a few months ago. Before this, I have never had a custom built wheel. I have had many aluminum prebuilt wheels before (Mavic SL, Dura Ace, Zipp). These wheels far exceed any that I have ridden before in speed, comfort, handling and braking at a much lower cost. The service from PWB was also perfect...great advice on the build... Pacenti SL23, White Industry T11, Sapim CX Ray (front) Race (rear). I love these wheels!

Have been riding my wheels (H Son Archetype rims; White Industries hubs and double butted Sapim spokes) long enough now to review them. They're fantastic, were perfectly true out of the box and have not needed any tuning or maintenance yet. Not a wobble front or rear after 800 or so miles, much of it on rough pavement. Service from Prowheelbuilder was terrific. Richard spent a lot of time with me on the phone explaining and reexplaining the differences between butted and bladed spokes and other points and making recommendations. The pricing was also very competitive and fair. Wheels came shipped in simple but smartly designed cardboard boxes without damage or hassle. All in all, am very happy with the wheels, and concerns I had about buying custom wheels from a company located on the other side of the country proved to be a non-issue.

I wanted to wait a bit before giving my review. After riding them for a few months I can say I love these wheels!
I called and told them what I was looking for and followed their suggestions. I went with the White Industry hubs and the HED Belgium rims. What I got was a great set of wheels. I don't race, but log a lot of miles just riding. These wheels are fast, smooth, handle great and bomb proof. His work is awesome and the personal service was super. I couldn't be happier with this wheel set. Thanks guys.

Once I placed my order, I received a phone call, the very next morning. About a small error, which was easily solved. This kind of follow through, shows the highest form of professionalism. I was told, that my purchase was already being collected. I then patiently waited, like a child for Christmas Morning, for my Wheel to arrive. Upon arrival, I opened the oddly shaped box, to Unveil, what I shall say is one of the finest pieces of Craftsmanship I have seen in Years. So, Special Thanks to Preston, who laced my wheel, and to Richard who masterfully Trued and Shipped my Wheel. AWESOME Job Fellas !!! here is a Pic. of it mounted on my Bike.
