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 worked with Preston. He is an awesome guy helped me out a lot. I am 6'2 270lb and I like to do the enduro/downhill/freestyle stuff with my hardtail. Being as big as I am I trashed some rims in a really nice rock garden. If it was not for Preston and his team I would have stopped riding, he gave me the wheels to bomb through anything I want to with no damage whatsoever. He gave me the confidence again that my bike could keep up with me and that I did not have to worry the whole time if my bubblegum quick release would flex under my jumps. I honestly feel like I am riding rails. The best experience I have had from any store in a long long time. I would recommend these professional and outstanding men to any person who asked me where I got the awesome looking and performing wheels I have. Thank you Preston so much for taking care of me!
