I had a custom wheelset made. I received them 3 weeks from the order date. They were dead true and all the spokes had equal tensions. I took them out on a 55 mile maiden cruse and they are flawless. I got a lot of comments from friends about how sharp these wheels look on my Orbea. Black hubs and nipples with white spokes and white Deep V's. It really makes the bike unique. Thanks Richard for the lacing advise and top notch wheel smithing. These wheels are bomb proof.

As a heavyweight rider, I found myself having to true my wheels often, to the point it was getting impossible to get them perfectly true. I even had to replace broken spokes a few times. I started looking for wheels at my local bike shops and the big online stores and was getting totally frustrated. I am so glad I found PWB.
I've had this wheel set (SHIMANO TOURING CLYDESDALE WHEEL SET PACKAGE) for just over two years and could not be happier. They are absolutely bomb proof; I have not had to touch a single spoke. I neglected to save my odometer miles when my computer battery died, but I have easily over 3600 miles on these wheels.
PWB's customer service is unparalleled - they even contacted me via phone and email to clarify some things as my order was being processed. Thank you so much PWB!
