Great Job. Ordered a Velocity Chukker 40 spoke and Velocity Rear Disc Hub with Sapin Strong Spokes for my 29er. Rode the bike fully loaded with food and water, Racks and my 120kg body from Perth to Sydney (4,700km). My major concern was that I had popped spokes previously on a 26 inch 36 spoke wheel when riding Cairns to Sydney and was worried about extra forces that would come into play with 29 inch. This wheel was bulletproof and attracted the attention of other touring cyclists on route. Good job team, thank you. Can't wait to find an excuse to buy another set. If you are a big bloke and to tour or trek with lots of gear, start your build with a set of wheels that will go the distance. One happy camper! Carl Johnston Australia

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!
