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.

Thank you for supplying me with excellent quality, custom length spokes. I am one of those weirdos that inspects the quality of the rolled thread on the spokes before I build. So often from spoke suppliers I've used in the past, I find they don't have the dies properly adjusted in their machines and you get either sloppy or more often than not, tight threads. Keep up the good work!
