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!

Just received my wheel set and all I can say is wow, the wheels are perfect. The level of service that Richard provided was truly great, there was an issue with delivery of the rims and he not only kept me in the loop as to what was going on but once complete shipped the wheels out on an overnight delivery. This issue was in no way Richards, but he treated me as if it was. I deal with outside vendors all the time and we are constantly having delivery issues with them, its sometimes the nature of the beast, but its how you handle your end customer that really matters and in this case Richard went beyond the call of duty. All I can really say is a huge thanks to Richard and his team for getting me a meticulously built really set of wheels that I expect will last a very long time. I certainly would not hesitate recommending Pro Wheel Builder to anyone. I know where I'll be getting my next set of wheels, from this website!
