I was going to buy a set of wheels from thebikebiz.com. White Phil hubs to white Deep Vs. Here's a quote from the email they sent me: "Wheel price would be $675 USD, and shipping will be approximately $200 USD". So... $875. Yesterday I received a pair of the exact same wheels from Richard at prowheelbuilder.com. Total cost including shipping: $594.70. That's almost $300 difference for the exact same item. I ordered them Sept 6 and received them September 18, so less than two weeks later. I only had to pay $31 in taxes and no customs. The wheels are fantastic and the price was great. Thanks Richard!

PWB built a set of Nox Kitsuma wheelset laced with i9 Hydra hubs for me. First of, I'm very impressed with the shipping boxes that the wheels came in. They were very well packed and PWB also sent extra spokes and nipples and an information card about the wheels. PWB's customer service is also very excellent. They will answer any questions/concerns right away. My only regret is that I did not have them built my other wheelset (I did not know them before). I highly recommend PWB to anyone looking for a high quality set of wheels at a very reasonable price.
