Just got my first wheelset from prowheelbuilder.com and it was an awesome experience. I had them build me a stans notubes ztr flow ex wheelset with hope hubs. They were super helpful and responded to my emails very quickly. The wheels were exactly how I ordered them and came in a beautifully packaged box. They shipped them within the timeframe that they set. Wheels were super true and flawless. I'm defiantly ordering from them again!

I can't say enough good things about PWB. My road bike gets daily abuse on a long, hilly commute over bad roads and gravel trails. I was looking for something that was light enough to climb well, tough enough for gravel, and precise enough to handle long descents through mountain switchbacks. The ride has chewed up two stock Bontrager wheelsets and even a set of Mavics. Local wheelbuilders weren't able to quote me anything they thought would work for less than a grand.
I considered a wide range of rims, hubs, and wheelbuilders before Debra at PWB suggested I take a look at the Ventus Premium wheelset. Watching a YouTube video of them bombing down trails gave me confidence that they might fit the bill. I'm glad I took her advice. They are light, responsive, and hold true even after a few months on gravel, and the custom red hubs look really sharp to boot.
