This was my first custom wheel build. I searched and searched online and kept coming back to ProWheelBuilder.com because the prices were far better than anything I was finding at the big named online shops. I've always thought the factory wheels were the way to go, but this experience has me sold on custom wheels. The quality of the work is obviously superior to any factory prepared wheel I've bought. I was a skeptic, but now I've seen the light. If I ever need wheels again, I won't hesitate to come back to these guys.

My OEM ebike wheel had a hop in it. When I went to my local bike store for a new wheel I gave him a wish list and a price range. I guess I wanted too much for too little and never heard back from him.
I entered my wish list to Pro wheel builder.com and found out I could indeed get what I wanted in budget.
3 weeks later I got a package with a gorgeous custom wheel for me, make with ebike Sapim strong spokes and a rugged DTswiss rim.
Later that afternoon after easily fitting it (my first tubeless tire) I went out to test it. Within a half hour I had achieved two new PRs on the two Strava segments I rode. One by 7 seconds and one by 10. I did a 12 mile trip at an average of 21.3 mph. I would say the wheel works! I don't know if it is the rim geometry, the fact that it is now running tubeless, or the Shimano hub being faster, but I guess I really don't care. The combo works. I would recommend ProWheelbuilder.com to my e-bike buddies, and you guys should probably make an e-bike category for this growing segment.
