I have purchased wheelsets from two other custom wheelbuilders in the past and firmly believe custom built wheels from a competent wheelbuilder are the best way to buy wheels. My riding friends with factory built wheels seem to experience wheel-related problems on a regular basis but my custom built wheels have held up well. When I finally need to replace a rear wheel recently, I decided to give prowheelbuilder.com a try. I knew what I wanted so I placed my order online. Their website was easy to use and informative with lots of choices.
After I placed my order, I decided to make a change to the number of spoke crossings I had originally spec'd so I emailed Richard. The change was made with no problem. My wheel arrived a few days before the predicted date, built exactly as spec'd. Since I work for a testing laboratory, I weighed the wheel on an analytical balance. The wheel was within 20 grams of the weight predicted by the website. I also received a warranty card with the wheel that included the spoke lengths and spoke tension used to build the wheel, something no one else has ever provided. Since then I have ridden the wheel over 1000 miles and it has performed well.
The three custom wheelbuilders I have used have all been good but prowheelbuilder.com has provided the best service and price. I will be a returning customer..

Pro Wheel builder has built many wheels for customers i have been in the bike industry for well over twenty years and i can tell you they build the best custom wheels out there. Last year a customer of mine that weighs 340 pounds came to me and asked for help as he was destroying wheels on his MTB i suggested we have Pro Wheel build him a set, well that set is over a year old and perfectly true with no issues now that's what you call a bullet proof wheel and a happy customer. Don't even think about using anybody else for that custom wheel and there customer service is the best Debra is amazing. Thanks PRO Wheelbuilder.
