My OEM ebike wheel had a hop in it. When I went to my local bike store for a new wheel I gave him a wish list and a price range. I guess I wanted too much for too little and never heard back from him.
I entered my wish list to Pro wheel builder.com and found out I could indeed get what I wanted in budget.
3 weeks later I got a package with a gorgeous custom wheel for me, make with ebike Sapim strong spokes and a rugged DTswiss rim.
Later that afternoon after easily fitting it (my first tubeless tire) I went out to test it. Within a half hour I had achieved two new PRs on the two Strava segments I rode. One by 7 seconds and one by 10. I did a 12 mile trip at an average of 21.3 mph. I would say the wheel works! I don't know if it is the rim geometry, the fact that it is now running tubeless, or the Shimano hub being faster, but I guess I really don't care. The combo works. I would recommend ProWheelbuilder.com to my e-bike buddies, and you guys should probably make an e-bike category for this growing segment.

I had been in need of a set of wheels to put on a new 29er for a good while. After asking around for a good, local builder, the majority of responses pointed to PWB.
The entire purchase process was very simple and user-friendly through the PWB website. And the customer service provided as top-notch. My questions about the order were answered very promptly and friendly. The order pickup was very quick and convenient.
I'd recommend PWB to anyone for the great, quality service and reasonable prices.
